I've updated the patch to make white the default initial mask setting
and switched to ctrl-shift clicking (configurable through the masks
preference) and added ctrl-alt shift click to bring up the dialog when
needed. As always clicking on the image with either key combination will
add or remove the mask for that layer.

Video of its use is here (was using ctrl only originally)

I had posted a patch to a bug report to add support for a button to be
added to the toolbar for the layer dialog/widget (see
https://imgur.com/wkyxoqM), but it's been suggested i post here for
starters to start a dialog. So here i go :)
I was wondering what the reticence to having the button there was.
Photoshop has a similar feature to add layer masks which avoids having
to reach for the menu to enable it.
