Implement gnt-cluster master-ping

This can be used from shell-scripts to quickly check the status of the

Checks if the master daemon is alive.
If the master daemon is alive and can respond to a basic query
(the equivalent of <command>gnt-cluster info</command>), then
the exit code of the command will be 0. If the master daemon
is not alive (either due to a crash or because this is not the
master node), the exit code will be 1.
