Bug Description

On a new MAAS instance, it can take up to a minute for the local cluster to connect to the region. Until the cluster is connected, MAAS is very much unusable because it doesn't have any architecture or power type registered.

[Impact]
 * Longer than necessary downtime to wait for connection from cluster to region is changed to faster frequency rather than a random range.

 * Means users need not wait as long to initially connect and run useful services

[Test Case]
 * Start region and cluster on two separate machines, wait for the two to actaully connect to eachother

[Regression Potential]
* Minimal, both maas-CI integration and unit tests running, only effects timers for frequency of rpcs

Associated a maas endpoint with two different cluster controllers, the new version synced known images much faster.
