Add an explicit layer docker menu button for showing the context menu actions

R. B. requested to merge tomtomtom/krita:tomtomtom/explicitlayeropmenu into master


This commit adds a menu button to the Layer Docker's Properties button which will grant the same layer operation actions as the right-click context menu. This is so that users without access to buttons on their stylus can now use this menu and some of its exclusive actions (outside of shortcuts).


Although this commit technically doesn't add new strings, it moves old strings to a new function, so I'm not sure if it's backportable.

Test Plan

Check if the right-click context menu and the layer operations menu button show all their actions properly. Check if they update their actions corresponding to the current state of what's selected in the layer stack. Check if the actions actually function.
