Add search capability to Multi-select for privileges and perhaps other places it makes sense.
Adding a search capability to privilege selection would be a huge gain. Currently the list is extremely long and the user may not know the section/prefix under which the desired page is filed.
Good examples of similar controls at http://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/ ("Multi-Select" control) and https://select2.github.io/examples.html ("Multiple select boxes" control) though ideally the results would show in a box one per line rather than in a continuous list if possible.
If Bootstrap has a similar one built-in that would be even better.

Adding select/search capability via chosen or select2 gave formatting issues and would no longer allow dynamic help text to be provided.
I have added a simple filter box/button instead and allowed it to respond to the Enter key.
Type "Desktop" then <Enter> to see only those options containing the word Desktop. (Case insensitive)
Its not exactly what you asked for, but it is the best compromise I could come up with for a low priority wish.

Looks good there too, though I hit a snag.
It works fine if you select just one thing, but if you select multiple it actually selects everything between the filtered options, even hidden items.
For example, make a user or group, then try to add privileges, enter "ipsec" and filter, then highlight everything, when you save, it added just about everything in the list, not just what was selected.
