    * doc/lispref/minibuf.texi (Intro to Minibuffers, Reading a Password):
    Password hiding is available in batch mode, do not mention it in
    the exclusion list.  Mention `read-hide-char'. 
    * lisp/subr.el (read-passwd): Use `read-hide-char' if non-nil.  Bind it
    when calling `read-string'.
    * src/minibuf.c (top): Include systty.h.  Declare external
    emacs_get_tty and emacs_set_tty.
    (Vread_hide_char): New lisp variable.
    (read_minibuf_noninteractive): Hide characters with
    Vread_hide_char if it is a character.
    * src/sysdep.c (emacs_get_tty, emacs_set_tty): Make them externally visible.
