      Description

      As pointed out in MDLSITE-3067, exceptions are raised if a client attempts to access an RSS feed for a context that no longer exists.

      The root cause of this is that /rss/file.php is calling get_context_info_array() which uses MUST_EXIST so throws an exception.

      It would be good if this was caught and a 404 response returned.

      To replicate:

      1. Switch RSS on at server level for forums
      2. Create a forum with RSS switched on and follow the RSS link
      3. Delete the forum
      4. Refresh the RSS link
      5. You should see an error
