Batch user manipulation buttons should be in a better place

Bug Description

In Administration -> Users -> User search, there are options to "Edit" selected users or "Get reports". However, the buttons to do this are above the list of users, which is confusing for screen reader users as they appear to be related to filtering rather than being actions.
A simple solution would be to add hidden text to the buttons so they are read out as "Edit selected users" and "Get reports for selected users". Alternatively the buttons could be moved to the bottom of the list (although that becomes an issue when there are 100 users shown per page ...)

Affects latest master

The links (now buttons) used to be on the right-hand side above the column where to select users, but that causes problems with the responsive design I think and thus was changed for 1.8. Adding hidden text would be the best solution I think.

As we are only going for the hidden text and not the moving of the buttons this has already been solved by the patch
