DDC-3108: Criteria cannot reference a joined tables' fields when used with an ORM QueryBuilder #3884

Jira issue originally created by user Ceiu:

This regression was introduced in 2.4.2 with the addition of the "rootAlias" stuff. Basically, the hard-coded addition of the rootAlias + "." prevents any Criteria object from referencing any field that isn't on the first table selected.

// Assume $repo is a valid EntityRepository and $value is some scalar value.
$qb = $repo->createQueryBuilder('T1')->join('T1.field', 'T2');

$criteria = new Comparison('T2.field2', Comparison::EQ, $value);

$dql = $qb->getDQL();

$dql is now (roughly) equal to:
SELECT T1 FROM T1 JOIN T1.field T2 WHERE T1.T2.field2 =

Evaluating this causes QueryExceptions to be thrown; usually something along the lines of "Expected Doctrine\ORM\Query\Lexer::, got '.'"

There's a similar issue involving ordering by a related field for the same reason.
