Sorting in My Subscription tab on Quantity

Description of problem:
Sorting columns in My subscription tab on Quantity is ambiguous. Not only do the subscriptions (parents) get sorted but also the stacked (children) quantities; which may be the expected behavior. 

If the Parent subscriptions are being sorted it is not clear on what criteria. This can be seen from the attachment.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# subscription-manager version 
server type: Red Hat Subscription Management
subscription management server: 0.8.28-1
subscription-manager: 1.10.2-1.git.53.5d7d98f.el6
python-rhsm: 1.10.2-1.git.4.3048ab5.el6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit facts so that subscriptions can be stacked
2. Stack different subscriptions from different group
3. Play with quantity header in My Subscription tab to sort them

Actual results:
See Attachment

Expected results:
It doesn't make sense to me why we are sorting on quantity in the first place when we have ignore it in "Contract Selection Window" and "All Available Subscriptions" tab. So I would prefer sorting on quantity be removed entirely.

If opted to retain this feature then it should be sorted in a better way as I find this to be confusing/ambiguous.

This appears to be working as intended.  it sorts by quantity on root rows first, which is empty string when there is a stack header.  The child rows are sorted properly in that case, so I don't think there's a problem, or a better way we could do this.  We do not ever want to break apart stacks.
