[QScintilla] [PATCH] Sort input file list

Sort input file list
so that Qsci.so builds in a reproducible way
in spite of indeterministic filesystem readdir order

See https://reproducible-builds.org/ for why this is good.

Without this patch, openSUSE's python-qscintilla-qt5 package
varied for every build.
