Change subject: pdch: Silently ignore DATA.ind with len=0

pdch: Silently ignore DATA.ind with len=0

Since recently (see Depends below), BTS side submits DATA.ind with len=0
to announce nothing was received on that UL block FN. This will allow
osmo-pcu track time more accurately, and use this information to quickly
find out if a UL block was expected as requested by RRBP or USF poll and
increment counters such as N3101 (finally being able to properly
implement timers such as T3619).
