That is only fast for single layer, as soon as it has to be performed
in multiple layers, it is slow also (select layer, move cursor, click
icons, move to select next layer...). Current method is not the
fastest, but this would surely make it slower.

I think Simon mockup is fine, if the icons take the non used space, so
they scale up based in the previews (bigger previews, bigger icons
too, or at least bigger action area, the ones in preview are like
checkboxes). It could also solve the issue of layer masks, by putting
a link (apply mask) and eye (show mask instead) icons, one above the
other, between the previews.
