If there are no MD devices, md_map is returned as NULL, and that
causes hash_free to segfault.  It would also cause other places to
segfault, eg. if there were no MD devices but /etc/fstab referenced
one (causing hash_lookup (NULL) to be called).

This problem was revealed by running test-inspect-fstab.sh.  Please
run all the tests!  Running 'make extra-tests' is a good idea too.
