I'd rather have them fail because nothing is to be committed (and not
because the commit message is empty) and document we expect that to
happen by using test_must_fail (and that for example will catch a later
change which accidentally makes commit create empty commits here).

Silly me, I forgot to do that (even though you explicitly mention
this dependency in the commit message). Sorry for the noise, all
tests run fine after rebasing your changes on top of mine.
