This is comint-previous-input and is also bound to M-p by default, could
not be faster than that. Comint-previous-matching-input-from-input is
much more useful IMO, so I would recommend this in your .emacs:

   (define-key comint-mode-map [(meta ?p)] 'comint-previous-matching-input-from-input)
   (define-key comint-mode-map [(meta ?n)] 'comint-next-matching-input-from-input)

These commands are bound to C-c M-r and C-c M-s by default.
