Correct plist.cpp ParseBinaryDate? processing

gcc correctly warns about a bare time.addMSecs (it returns a QTime):

plist.cpp: In member function ‘QVariant PList::ParseBinaryDate(quint8*)’:
plist.cpp:467:30: warning: ignoring return value of ‘QTime QTime::addMSecs(int) const’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]
     time.addMSecs(msec % 1000);
In file included from /usr/include/qt5/QtCore/QDateTime:1:0,
                 from plist.cpp:32:
/usr/include/qt5/QtCore/qdatetime.h:178:11: note: declared here
     QTime addMSecs(int ms) const Q_REQUIRED_RESULT;

If I understand the code correctly, the intent is to add in the msec offset value into the converted time, with the gyrations needed due to the limitation of the older QDateTime fromTime_t member (seconds only).

Note that in Qt 5.8, QDateTime::fromTime_t is depcrecated, and since Qt 5.2, a new function QDateTime::fromMSecsSinceEpoch exists that appears to do what was originally desired.

Kill the warning (bug), and prepare for the future, with the following proposed patch:

In f593e239acf14b957c0b41ae2b6b195eb1b104bd/mythtv:

Fixes #13013 - Remove warning and use a Qt method which achieves the same result

This is a reworking of f37b2a29e2f8a3f1e0ccf5b1c1d269bcbdbfe2e7
which uses Qt functions which better match the intent of the code.
