Drew - I would suggest working with Adam on this one.  It looks like we are collecting VMware folder types (host/datastore) that we were not collecting before.  They are now showing up in the folder selection in the VMware provisioning UI.  Maybe there is a different call we should be making to only get VM folders back.

    Add the hidden column into EmsFolder's MiqHasStruct.
    Commit 7eec1c677 has changed the way to use the hidden column to determine if a ems_folder should be displayed to the user or not.
    However, the hidden column got lost when an EmsFolder object is  converted to a MiqHashStruct.
