Indeed.  :-)  I'll leave it to Maciej to approve.

I see that sh64-tdep.c:sh64_media_print_registers_info has the
same problem.

A bit silly that we force each arch backend to do this.

I guess the loop in registers_info could/should already skip
empty-named registers, like default_print_registers_info does.
