Add New User: Don't show roles dropdown if current user can't promote users

A user with the create_users cap but without the promote_users cap can still select a role on wp-admin/user-new.php. Though, the role doesn't get used due to the additional cap check in edit_user(). Therefore we should remove the roles dropdown on the page to avoid confusion.
