Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] [Patch] Allow FT_NONE item to be filtered from menu

Hi,

This patch allows FT_NONE items to be built into filter expressions (i.e. testing for their presence or absence rather than comparing with a value) using the Apply|Prepare a Filter menus. What drove me to add this was having to type in !tcp.analysis.out_of_order.
Does this seem reasonable?

Regards,
Martin
