 Avoid passing non-variables to `empty()` throughout codebase.

 This ensures full compatibility with versions of PHP earlier than 5.5.

 In some cases, we avoid the use of `empty()` by moving to its equivalent,
 `! isset( $foo ) || ! $foo`. In some cases, we convert the tested value
 to a variable before passing to `empty()`.

 See #7998.
