I've added this function, and replaced the use of G_raster_map_type()
where practical. The number of files which use G_raster_map_type() is
down from 73 to 22 (6 of which are in r.le).

The remaining cases either don't open the map (e.g. modules which only
operate upon support files), or are structured in such a way that
getting at the descriptor is problematic.
