comint-last-prompt-overlay was removed in order to work around bug
14744.  There are no occurrences to comint-last-prompt within Emacs'
source code any more.

I do not think comint-last-prompt-overlay was supposed to be used by
user code.  It was a defvar without a docstring, right in-between two
function definitions.
