Ignore pending_signals when checking for quits.

pending_signals is often set if no quit is pending.  This results in
bugs in module code if the module returns but no quit is actually

As a better alternative, add a new process_input environment function
for Emacs 27.  That function processes signals (like maybe_quit).

* Add module snippet for Emacs 27.

* src/module-env-27.h: New file.

* src/ Add process_input function to environment

* src/emacs-module.c (module_should_quit): Use QUITP macro to check
whether the caller should quit.
(module_process_input): New function.
(initialize_environment): Use it.

* src/eval.c: Remove obsolete comment.

* test/data/emacs-module/mod-test.c (signal_wrong_type_argument)
(signal_errno): New helper functions.
(Fmod_test_sleep_until): New test module function.

* test/src/emacs-module-tests.el (mod-test-sleep-until): New unit

* doc/lispref/internals.texi (Module Misc): Document process_input.
