 Return an empty string from get_meta() functions when no value is found

 BP get_meta() functions have been inconsistent about the type of value
 when no match is found for the object_id+meta_key combination. In some
 we followed WP's get_metadata() and returned an empty string. In others,
 returned false.

 This changeset aligns all of our get_meta() functions with WP in this
 returning an empty string when no matching value is found. A boolean false
 still returned when invalid arguments are passed to the functions.

 Relevant unit tests have been updated, including strict assertSame()
 where appropriate.
