Please accept M-p as well as C-p

Bash accepts the Emacs keybinding C-p to go back in the history, and C-n to go 
But most of the time in Emacs (when using its minibuffer) the keys you use are 
and Meta-n, or on a modern PC keyboard Alt-p and Alt-n.

Currently entering M-p at the bash prompt gives some control characters.
It could more usefully go back in the history instead.  Then if you flip 
between GNU
emacs and GNU bash you wouldn't keep typing the wrong thing.
