Subject[PATCH] binder: fix CONFIG_ANDROID_BINDER_DEVICES
Date
Several users have tried to only rely on binderfs to provide binder devices
and set CONFIG_ANDROID_BINDER_DEVICES="" empty. This is a great use-case of
binderfs and one that was always intended to work. However, this is
currently not possible since setting CONFIG_ANDROID_BINDER_DEVICES="" emtpy
will simply panic the kernel:

So check for the empty string since strsep() will otherwise return the
emtpy string which will cause kobject_add_internal() to panic when trying
to add a kobject with an emtpy name.
