From: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@xilinx.com>

When the length of the string is zero of_property_read_string should
return -ENODATA according to the description of the function.

However, of_property_read_string doesn't check prop->length. If
prop->length is zero, return -ENODATA.

Without this patch the following command in u-boot:

fdt set /chosen/node property-name

results in of_property_read_string returning -EILSEQ when attempting to
read property-name. With this patch, it returns -ENODATA as expected.
