New Mask Tools are great - BUT how can I get the gradient tools back on the Crop/Heal, etc tool bar?

LR Classic just upgraded and the Gradient Tools are now buried inside a masking submenu. These new tools are a great adddition, but this menu change has a negative impact on my workflow.  Adding a gradient, a one-click action (sometimes used on hundreds of images in a day) now requires four clicks with additional navigation in a pop-up menu. 

 

How can I restore them to that tool bar???   

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

I doubt that Adobe will restore the individual tool icons above the Basic panel.

I find it convenient to use the keyboard shortcuts-  [M] for a Gradient, [K] for a Brush, etc.

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.
