wait for device mounts in zpool and dumpon

Description

wait for device mounts in zpool and dumpon

If the root file system is composed from multiple devices, wait for
devices to be ready before running zpool and dumpon rc scripts.

An example of this is if the bulk of the root file system exists on a
fast device (e.g. NVMe) but the /var directory comes from a ZFS dataset
on a slower device (e.g. SATA). In this case, it is possible that the
zpool import may run before the slower device has finished being probed,
leaving the system in an intermediate state.

Fix is to add root_hold_wait to the zpool and dumpon (which has a
similar issue) rc scripts.
