Patch for error message issue on net-snmp 5.8

Attached is a patch that resolves this issue (based on patch from upstream).

Verified issue occurred on a number of CentOS 8 hosts with net-snmp-5.8-20. Applied patch to net-snmp-5.8-20 source rpm, installed and retested on hosts. Disk and process error messages now successfully return an empty string.
