Is it actually the case that inputSemaphore and hasInputSemaphore are
no longer in use? They appear to be used now in exactly the same way
they were used in Squeak 3.8. But in Squeak 3.6, the inputSemaphore was
waited on by an ioProcess, so it looks like it served a useful purpose
back then.

So yes, this actually does appear to be dead code that has been waiting
all these years for cleanup :-)
