Subject[PATCH] libbpf: skip empty sections in bpf_object__init_global_data_maps
Date
The GNU assembler generates an empty .bss section. This is a well
established behavior in GAS that happens in all supported targets.

The LLVM assembler doesn't generate an empty .bss section.

bpftool chokes on the empty .bss section.

Additionally in bpf_object__elf_collect the sec_desc->data is not
initialized when a section is not recognized. In this case, this
happens with .comment.

So we must check that sec_desc->data is initialized before checking
if the size is 0.
