Add a comment to the os.fork docs to note that forking from a subinterpreter is no longer allowed (see issue34651)

Nice work, Phil.  We need a backport to 3.8, but the miss-islington bot is having trouble with it. [1]  Either we can try flipping the "needs backport to 3.8" label again or you could create a backport PR yourself (like miss-islington suggested).  If you do that then be sure to request a review from me. :)

Flipping the label one more time did the trick.  Thanks again, Phil!
