Description

It was discovered in T192875 that myloader, the software used as part of our backup and restore tools recover_section.py, doesn't restore empty databases (databases with no tables in it), as reported upstream in https://github.com/maxbube/mydumper/issues/110 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/mydumper/+bug/1558164

While the software is generically known as mydumper, mydumper actually dumps the databases, it is the command myloaded that skips it, as it iterates only over existing lower level objects.
