Provide link to password reset on mobile

The good news: we have a password reset form that looks pretty good and works on mobile.

The bad news: we don't tell users it exists.

When I'm mobile login and I repeatedly fail to enter my password, the link to Help:Logging in and Special:PasswordReset have been removed. Search also does not appear in the header here, so I can't search.

"Help:Logging in" in most of its language versions is too long and not great all around. I can understand removing that. But we could probably increase retention of mobile editors, some of whom edit exclusively on mobile, but providing the password reset when they fail to remember their passwords.
