[ltt-dev] [UST PATCH] TESTS: Add a delay at the start of the fork test for a more uniform testing.

Add a sleep to leave time for the ustconsumer thread to initialize correctly
before the fork.
Most of the time the consumer was not yet started at the time of the fork so
a bunch of initializations were not done and the fork code path was not
tested properly.
