Can you instead add a boolean parameter to xen_convert_trap_info() to indicate 
whether to skip empty entries? That will avoid (almost) duplicating the code.

I can, sure, but I specifically didn't, as the result is going to be less
readable imo. Instead I was considering to fold xen_convert_trap_info()
into its only remaining caller. Yet if you're convinced adding the
parameter is the way to do, I will go that route. But please confirm.

I don't think the result will be very hard to read. All you need is the
new parameter and extending the if statement in xen_convert_trap_info()
to increment out always if no entry is to be skipped.
