Although the comment explains the vg_exists() function may be just a
guess, it is misleading to have a function called "vg_exists()" that
takes a vg_t * and returns true of vg_t * is NULL.

Also from what I can tell, all places that call vg_exists() is preceeded
immediately by a call to vg_read_error() which does the same check.
