Bug Description

QtMobility has an abstraction for hardware feedback like rumbling or vibrating when touching the screen or playing a sound. The basic components should support this out of the box, and if it makes sense provide some glue to customize it.
This is qtdeclarative5-qtfeedback-plugin for Qt5 and "import QtFeedback 5.0", the plugin name changed

Assessment of the status quo shows: we have the sound/ multimedia[1] part of QtFeedback but vibration[2] requires another hardware-specific module.

A short-term solution to access the vibrator is to do the equivalent of echo 150 > /sys/class/timed_output/vibrator/enable in the hardware-specific module.

This isn't tested on a device. It provides a plugin that takes custom and themed vibrations, as used in the QML testcase. An open question is if it's preferrable to patch QtFeedback/ merge upstream or install it as part of other platform components, though I'm not sure if we have a suitable place for it.
