Before this fix the search was broken in *Async Shell Command*
and in inactive shells.

For example, try to set comint-history-isearch to ‘dwim’
and type ‘C-r’ in a *Async Shell Command* buffer.  It fails with

  Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument processp nil)

Or even when comint-history-isearch is nil by default, run shell ‘M-x shell’,
then exit it, and after “Process shell finished” type ‘M-r’ and any letter
to search for it:

  Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument processp nil)

In these cases the history can't be searched because there is no active shell.
I wonder what use case do you need in inactive shells without a prompt,
so it's impossible to search in the history.  How you used to search
through the shell history without failing in ‘comint-goto-input’ like
in the backtrace above?
