[ClusterLabs] Delayed first monitoring

1. Pacemaker will/may call a monitor before starting a resource, in which case it expects a NOT_RUNNING response. It's just checking assumptions at that point.

2. A resource::start must only return when resource::monitor is successful. Basically the logic of a start() must follow this:

start() {
  while ! monitor() ; do
      sleep some
  return $OCF_SUCCESS
