This patchset adds support for breakpad on windows.
There might be minor adjustments to be done (most likely using a more recent
breakpad version in contribs), but the main code is here.
Switching to C++ might not be required, but would cause us to introduce an
extra static library, I'm not sure it's worth it, and actually find the
switch to C++ simpler and clearer here.

1st patch is obviously not meant to be pushed, but should you want to try the
patchset, you can.

Hugo Beauzée-Luyssen (7):
  qt: Add a way to test breakpad
  contrib: Allow breakpad to be built on windows
  Rework breakpad detection to enable it on windows as well
  winvlc: Remove old crash handling code
  bin: Convert winvlc to C++
  win32: Use breakpad for error reporting
  configure: Specify a build ID when building with breakpad
