Exit gracefully if no IDVAlgorithm is found

Patrick Koppenburg requested to merge pkoppenb-IDVAlgorithm into master

LoKi functors, as well as some other tools, assume they are owned by a DVAlgorithm and use the tools configured within. Typically, BPVIPCHI2() assumes the existence of the geometry tool. This was reported bu @amathad in following

There's no point fixing LoKi as eventually its functors will be replaced by ThOr. BPVIPCHI2 is already. In the meantime make sure there is no crash but exit gracefully instead. With this MR the message is

FunctionalParticleMaker.LoKi::Hy...   FATAL  Exception with tag=Gaudi::Utils::getIDVAlgorithm is caught

I suggest to backport to run 2.
