Description

In the metadata tab of PostGIS layer properties the line "Storage type of this layer:" shows "Generic vector file"

This seemed odd since a shapefile layer would show "ESRI Shapefile" in its properties.

Checking with version 0.8.1, PostGIS layers have "PostgreSQL database with PostGIS extension" for storage type.

This is a very minor defect.

I found that the storageType() function declared in qgspostgresprovider.h and defined in qgspostgresprovider.cpp was missing a trailing const modifier. In the patch provided I also added virtual in the declaration, but I am a bit confused as to whether it should be used, since the usage appears inconsistent with other similar functions.
