IIRC, dir_lookup of "" is equivalent to ".", and can be thought of as
the middle component of the path "foo//bar", which is equivalent to
"foo/bar". For posix calls, e.g. open, calling with "" is an error,
probably ENOENT.

But I don't know is this meaning of "" is implemented in the client
code or in the file server code.
