Hiding a nested collection doesn't immediately update its parent instances in the scene
Confirmed, NormalPublicBUG

Description

Blender Version
Broken: 483ae407d9d1 (blender2.8 HEAD)
Worked: ?

Short description of error
Hiding a nested collection doesn't immediately update its parent instances in the scene.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Hide the Torus collection (via the screen icon), this should hide this collection objects in the B - I Instanced a torus collection, however it doesn't unless you save and re-open or force depsgraph update in other ways.

If you toggle the A - I have a torus collection off, this one affects the instanced visibility immediately.

Note 1: The file only has Empties because I was looking at the depsgraph image and it was giving me a simpler depsgraph this way.

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) is it possible there are missing connections between the collections? I find strange that toggling the "parent" collection visibility works, but not its child. The bug description may be confusing, but with the image + sample file should be simple to reproduce.

While there could be some missing relations, seems things go a bit deeper.

Discussed with Brecht here.
