Smack: don't show empty rules when /smack/load or /smack/load2 is read
This patch removes empty rules (i.e. with access set to '-') from the rule list presented to user space. Smack by design never removes labels nor rules from its lists. Access for a rule may be set to '-' to effectively disable it. Such rules would show up in the listing generated when /smack/load or /smack/load2 is read. This may cause clutter if many rules were disabled. As a rule with access set to '-' is equivalent to no rule at all, they may be safely hidden from the listing.
