Readline isn't processing both config files, it's processing only one,
so the behavior I described makes sense, but may not be ideal.

Before its behavior was to try INPUTRC if it's set, then ~/.inputrc.
Now it tries INPUTRC if it's set, then ~/.inputrc if it exists, then
/etc/inputrc.  There should still be a way to override reading the
global config file.

Perhaps it should try INPUTRC if it's set, then both /etc/inputrc and
~/.inputrc ?
