 Privacy: Limit Privacy Settings screen to Super Admins in Multisite.

 In many common Multisite use cases, the network administrator will want to
 set a network-wide privacy policy -- via the privacy_policy_url filter --
 for consistency and convenience. When that's done, the Privacy Settings
 screen on individual sites becomes unnecessary, and may confuse
 administrators of those sites when they see that their changes don't have
 any effect on the policy link in the footer.

 Since we can't programatically determine which behavior the network admins
 would like, the safest default setting is to restrict the ability to super
 admins, and let them delegate it to individual site owners via a plugin,
 if they'd like to.

 Merhes [43147] to the 4.9 branch.
 Fixes #43935.
