Subject: [lio-utils] fix empty attribute string writes

Writing an empty string to a sysfs attribute does not work,
as 'echo -n "" >/sys/some/path/to/attribute" fails, as it
gets optimized to a NOOP.

This patch converts user input of an empty string to the
4-leter string "NULL", which is how sysfs actually detects
empty string values for targets.
