guard against non-existing device nodes

As soon as devices are detected, they will show up in /sys/block but
there might be a delay before udev has created device nodes. sys2dev
will then happily make up device node paths which do not exist.

So while looping through block devices on the search for live_fs, catch
non-existing device nodes as early as possible to avoid errors when
trying to do various operations on non-existing devices.

Note that the guard in find_livefs means that subdevices are not
searched if the mother device node does not exist. Previously, a
/dev/sda1 could be found even if /dev/sda was missing. I do not see any
cases where that should be happening though.
