I don't understand what do you propose.  Currently the error message
is already before the prompt and looks like:

Failing I-search backward: bar

but overwrites the minibuffer content.  With `minibuffer-message'
it looks like:

I-search backward: foo [Failing I-search backward: bar]

If necessary, we can make the error message shorter like:

I-search backward: foo [Failing: bar]

Anyway, to show the failed search string is more important than
the minibuffer content.
