I added one commit to fix a merge conflict and to add proper since mention.

I tested the PR with the following code:

add_filter( 'admin_footer_text', function() {
	echo '<select>';
	wp_dropdown_roles( 'editor' );
	echo '</select>';
} );

It returns the same result than before the patch.

and then I tested it with this snippet:

add_filter( 'admin_footer_text', function() {
	$roles = wp_dropdown_roles( array(
		'echo' => false,
	) );
	var_export( $roles );
} );

$roles is an array of roles.

Looks good to me 👍

Ah, wait, no. In the above example, $roles is not an array. It's a string.
I can hardly see how to use it in real life. We should probably just return an array of user roles. Probably just returning the content of $editable_roles should be enough.
