[Qt-creator] Show all project files in stocked CMake plugin in Hackers way

1) Tree view more comfortable for project navigation. File system view not
allow it.
2) Right globbing pattern can be used for tree filtering as end-user want.
File system view allows only hidden files ignoring.
3) This files will be shown in Locator search using filter "Files in
Current Project". "Files in File System" good filter too, but you must
strongly known where needed file located.

1) UI freeze on a big projects (LLVM one of them) for a 2-10 sec when cmake
completed and project tree rebuilded.
2) Using this solution all files will be passed to the code model too. And
it can be broken. https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-17607 should
help (but it should help in most other cases too).
3) File system view simple to keep synchronized with FS using
FileSystemWatcher. This solution requires cmake restart.
