The following code in get_mext_match():

  index = (index + items_num) % items_num;

... makes the program crash when items_num is zero (that is, the menu
is empty).

A menu can be empty when all the options in it are hidden by unmet
'depends on'.

For example,

  menu "This menu will be empty"

  config FOO
         bool "foo"
         depends on BROKEN


If you visit this menu and press a '/' key and then another key, nconf
crashes with:

  Floating point exception (core dumped)

When the number of items is zero, it does not make sense to search in
the menu. In this case, current_item() returns NULL, and item_index()
ERR, but the current get_mext_match() does not check any error.

Let's make it just return if items_num is zero, and also check the
return value from item_index() just in case.

Change items_num from 'int' to 'unsigned int' because it should never
become negative.
