x86-64, vdso: Fix vDSO build breakage due to empty .rela.dyn
Certain ld versions (observed with 2.20.0) put an empty .rela.dyn section into shared object files, breaking the assumption on the number of sections to be copied to the final output. Simply discard any empty SHT_REL and SHT_RELA sections to address this.
