hWaitForInput documentation is wrong

The documentation for System.IO.hWaitForInput states that "in the current implementation, (...) if t is non-zero, then all other concurrent threads are blocked until data is available"
This is not true in GHC 6.6 on Windows. Both threads forked with forkIO and forkOS continue working normally.
Most likely an oversight. Might be in more places.
