bad raidtab entry: /dev/mdmd0

* kickstart install w/ raid
The installed system failed to boot complaining about a lack of raid
device in /dev. Poking around at the repair filesystem prompt, I
discovered that /etc/raidtab referenced /dev/mdmd0 instead of /dev/md0
Here is the partitioning section of the kickstart:
part / --size 2048 --grow
part /boot --size 200
part swap --recommended
part raid.01 --size 2048 --grow
part raid.02 --size 2048 --grow
raid /usr --level 0 --device md0 raid.01 raid.02
2.1 doesn't support --device md0 -- you must do --device 0 to get
(This is the link you get when you select the 2.1 AS Customization
Guide from https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/)
'--device md0' should work
Even the 7.1 (and 7.3) customization guide(s) list this as correct syntax.
The installer does seem to handle it fine for the most part, only the
entry in raidtab is broken.
7.2 didn't support --device at all (the fact that the docs say that it
does to the contrary). I added the --device n hack for IS in the
initial spin of 2.1 but then improved on it for 7.3.
