Often an asynchronous shell command run with M-& produces the output
that looks like garbage when programs use carriage control characters ^M
to display progress with percentages.

Even the `compile' command is better in this regard because its
`compilation-filter' handles carriage motion using the function

The following patch does the same for asynchronous commands in
`shell-command'.  It seems it was intended to do this anyway because
`*Async Shell Command*' uses `shell-mode'.  But `shell-mode' doesn't set
the filter that processes carriage control characters.  It is the `shell'
command that sets the filter via `comint-exec' before enabling `shell-mode'.
So it's necessary to set the filter explicitly in `shell-command'
after enabling `shell-mode':
