There's a loop that doesn't exit until the user has selected at least one
partition. I tested that, and it works fine. It works the same way mdcfg
currently does if the user doesn't select two partitions.

This part of my patch:

-       # Loop until the correct amount of active devices has been selected
-       while [ "${SELECTED}" -ne "${DEV_COUNT}" ]; do
+       # Loop until at least one device has been selected
+       until [ "${SELECTED}" -gt "0" -a "${SELECTED}" -le "${DEV_COUNT}" ];
