Add --wait-for-sync in gnt-instance

Note that this needs (like for the opcode) a new option, with the
default reverted (False instead of True).

The ``--wait-for-sync`` option will ensure that the command returns only
after the instance's disks are synchronised (mostly for DRBD); this can
be useful to ensure consistency, as otherwise there are no commands that
can wait until synchronisation is done. However when passing this
option, the command will have additional output, making it harder to
parse the disk information.
Note that it is safe to run this command while the instance is already
