Actually, the "toggle auto mode" does kinda belong in the "View" menu,
as long as we consider that menu to be both about viewing the buffers,
and organising the ibuffer buffer itself.

So I'd suggest just moving the "diff" to "Operate" and removing the
customisation menu item.  I think that's a pretty unusual item to have
in the menu?
