      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      My application is running with a custom list of security providers. The list is passed to the application in an alternate java security file like:
      % java -Djava.security.properties=/path/to/my/java.security ...

      The list of security providers in the file is:
      ```
      security.provider.1=BCFIPS C:HYBRID;ENABLE{All}
      security.provider.2=SUN
      security.provider.3=BCJSSE fips:BCFIPS
      security.provider.4=
      ```
      When I start the application, it outputs "invalid entry for security.provider.4" on standard error, but otherwise behaves as intended.
      If I remove the "security.provider.4" line, all providers from master security file with priority 4+ (like SunJSSE, SunJCE) are registered. This is not acceptable.

      Can we stop logging "invalid entry..." when an empty entry is encountered?
