Subject: [PATCH] Detail: handle non-existent arrays better.
References: bsc#966773

If you call "mdadm --detail" with a device file for an array which
doesn't exist, such as by
  mknod /dev/md57 b 9 57
  mdadm --detail /dev/md57

you get an unhelpful message about and inactive RAID0, and return
status is '0'.  This is confusing.

So catch this possibility and print a more useful message, and
return a non-zero status.
