Subject[PATCH] modules: Skip empty sections when exporting section notes
Date
Date: Sat, 19 Dec 2009 14:43:01 +0000
From: Ben Hutchings <ben@decadent.org.uk>
Commit 35dead4 "modules: don't export section names of empty sections
via sysfs" changed the set of sections that have attributes, but did
not change the iteration over these attributes in add_notes_attrs().
This can lead to add_notes_attrs() creating attributes with the wrong
names or with null name pointers.

Introduce a sect_empty() function and use it in both add_sect_attrs()
and add_notes_attrs().
