helper/command: handle empty "usage" with add_help_text/add_usage_text

By using the command "add_help_text" to add a help text to a TCL
procedure it implicitly creates a new command_registration struct
that has field .usage set to NULL. This triggers a debug message
	BUG: command '%s' does not have the '.usage' field filled out

Use an empty string if usage field is NULL.

Plus, do not annoy the user with a LOG_INFO when the command
"add_usage_text" replaces an empty usage.
