How about moving the default handling in dm_table_set_type() outside of
the for-each-target loop, like the modified patch below?

For example, if a table has 2 targets, hybrid and request_based,
and live_md_type is DM_TYPE_NONE, the table should be considered as
request_based, not inconsistent.
Though the end result is same as such a table is rejected by other
constraint anyway, I think it's good to keep the semantics clean
and error messages consistent.

I.e. for the above case, the error message should be
"Request-based dm doesn't support multiple targets yet",
not "Inconsistent table: different target types can't be mixed up".
