bug#34123: A patch to fix reading EOF characters in non-interactive mode

Is there another way I can address the concern here? I'm willing to put in the work to get this in.

To put it more simply, it seems like an error that emacs doesn't call clearerr(stdin) after reading EOF. Without that, it's impossible to ever read from stdin after the first EOF. Should that be changed?

I think we are miscommunicating, since your usage involves Emacs
reading from the terminal.  That is not noninteractive in my book.
What I mean by noninteractive is when stdin is not connected to a
terminal.  Your proposed patch affects that case as well, doesn't it?
