The empty string isn't a valid value for IPAddressFields, and PostgreSQL in particular won't accept it; NULL should be used instead. However, IPAddressField inherits the attribute empty_strings_allowed = True from the Field class. Additionally, the Oracle backend interprets NULL to mean the empty string unless empty_strings_allowed is False. This patch corrects these inconsistencies.

(In [5544]) Fixed #4686 -- Do not permit empty strings in IPAddressField. Should be fully
backwards compatible, but fixes an Oracle subtlety. Thanks, Ian Kelly.
