 I'm currently working on a community project where there are a lot of
 front-end file uploads. I've noticed that when you upload a non-image
 file, an empty _wp_attachment_metadata is added to the postmeta table.
 Just did a quick patch to check the $data in wp_update_attachment_metadata
 function. And since $data comes always as an array from
 wp_generate_attachment_metadata, we do not update if it is an empty array.
