From: Darrick J. Wong <djwong@kernel.org>

xfs_admin in xfsprogs 5.11 has a bug wherein a caller who specifies an
external log device forces xfs_db to be invoked, potentially with zero
command arguments.  When this happens, xfs_db will wait for input on
stdin, which causes fstests to hang.  Since xfs_admin is not an
interactive tool, redirect stdin from /dev/null to prevent this issue.
