Log message:
	Fix reading of unitialized memory
	
	Could be reached via few of our lvm2 test cases:
	
	==11501== Invalid read of size 8
	==11501==    at 0x49B2E0: _area_length (import-extents.c:204)
	==11501==    by 0x49B40C: _read_linear (import-extents.c:222)
	==11501==    by 0x49B952: _build_segments (import-extents.c:323)
	==11501==    by 0x49B9A0: _build_all_segments (import-extents.c:334)
	==11501==    by 0x49BB4C: import_extents (import-extents.c:364)
	==11501==    by 0x497655: _format1_vg_read (format1.c:217)
	==11501==    by 0x47E43E: _vg_read (metadata.c:2901)

	pvcreate -M1 $(cat DEVICES)
	vgcreate -M1 -c n $vg $(cat DEVICES)
	lvcreate -l1 -n $lv1 $vg $dev1
	--
	
	Idea of the fix is rather defensive - to allocate one extra element
	to 'map' array which is then used in _area_length() - where the
	loop checks, whether next map entry is continuous.
	
	By placing there always one extra zero entry -
	we fix the read of unallocated memory, and we make sure the data would
	not make a continous block.
	
	FIXME: there could be a problem if some special broken lvm1 data would be imported.
	As the format1 is currently not really used - leave it for future fix
	and use this small hotfix for now.
