Okay, so you've established that `noninteractive` only diverts "normal emacs"
to call `read_minibuf_noninteractive()` which in turn attempts to get input
from stdin, which as we all know by now, *you do not want*.

It's not clear what else you expect from us apart from some hackey function
advising to signal instead of calling `read_minibuf_noninteractive()`.

I am inclined to go with GP's shunting of stdin to /dev/null to avoid having
to change the C code.  Most well behaved server daemons will do that... shunt
stdin to /dev/null I mean.
