 Admin users in multi-site do not have the ability to send password reset
 emails from /wp-admin/users.php.

 Repro Steps:
 On a site with multisite, create a user, assign admin role.
 Go to /wp-admin/users.php.

 Expected Results:
 Admin can send a reset password email to any user.

 Actual Results:
 Send password reset link missing from actions links
 Send password reset option missing from bulk-actions drop-down

 Other Information:
 class-wp-users.php -> get_bulk_actions() uses "if ( current_user_can(
 'edit_users' ) )" as the condition to determine if this can be allowed.
 The same check is performed in the single_row() method when the actions
 are specified.

 I understand there are restrictions in multi-site for user
 creation/editing for non-super admins, however I believe this is not a
 security action and should not be restricted for site administrators.
