Unlike recent versions of Linux, barebox represents the dummy regulator
as a NULL pointer and regulator API is supposed to anticipate operation
on a NULL pointer. When regulator_get_voltage was ported from Linux,
this was not taken into consideration, which leads to
regulator_get_voltage(NULL) crashing with a NULL pointer dereference.

Fix this by returning -EINVAL for dummy regulators. This aligns us with
how Linux would behave in this situation.

* [PATCH master 2/2] common: don't fixup empty serial/machine_compatible strings

There is no point in fixing up an empty string into the kernel device
tree, yet this can happen when globalvar_add_simple_string() is called
for the variable at least once as the function replaces NULL with an
allocated empty string. globalvar_add_simple_string() was called
unconditionally for of.kernel.add_machine_compatible, which in turn
led to always fixing up an empty string as the top-most compatible.

Resolve this by having barebox_get_(of_machine_compatible|serial_number)
return NULL for the empty string as well.

Fixes: 81dd24a0946c ("of: add generic of_prepend_machine_compatible()")
Fixes: f6756e9ce6f2 ("common: add $global.serial_number with device tree fixup")
