Bug Description

The current syncdaemon API does not provide a way for clients to know when the volumes info is updated using the server info that is requested at startup time. This has some nasty consequences for end-user apps like showing an empty cloud folder list, even if the user has several folders in its cloud space (this always happens where the user starts ubuntu one without previous metadata on disk, can be a clean install or just wiped metadata).

We need to provide an IPC/DBus signal that should be fired when that info is ready, so clients can connect to it and show the updated info to the user.

Is worth noting that the branch that solves this does not modify any UI nor it changes any string.

Note to self: set a signal once volumes in vm are ready, then handle the signal in interaction_interfaces to let control-panel and others know that we're ready.
