New permission: view forum

Currently it would be nice to be able to forbid viewing project forums to anonymous users.
A "Can view forums" checkbox in role permissions would suffice.

- Subject changed from Forum view permissions to New Permission: View Forum
This would solve several use-cases I think. Some quotes from #8618 (duplicating issue):

Most of the Permission do have a View XXXX checkbox, but not the forum. In my case i wanted to give a customer access to our redmine. In fact he is able to see our discussion forum which is not ment to be public. Its definetly a missing thing.

I've got the same problem. Work-around was to move the forum to another private project, but this is less than ideal, as it really should all be in the same project. Causes confusion and extra clicks.

The patch works fine and passed all tests.
I think that delivering this feature along with #7068 makes permission control system of Redmine more consistent. Setting target version to 3.4.0.
