Patch for enabling hide in dirdiff

From Debian bug report at :

Dear Maintainer,

Although meld code gives the possibility to hide files and dirs in the dirdiff view, meld gui does not show this feature. So we can not hide items ourself.

The attached patch adds "Hide" to the menu, the toolbar and the popup.

Also, this bug seems to affect the 3.11.1 from experimental.

I'm sorry, but that removal was intentional. The Hide action never had a clear use case, and having it makes future improvements to the tree view harder.
