Patch to produce messages with null body using console producer

jelmer
Hi folks,

A while back I opened a pull request ( https://github.com/apache/kafka/pull/7567 )  that makes it possible to produce messages with a null body using the kafka console producer. 

I believe this is a useful addition as it makes it possible to effectively "delete" records from a compacted kafka topic.

So far the pull request has not received any attention. The patch is fairly minimal and does not break existing behaviour. Is there any chance someone could take a look at this?
