multifd_send_state->channels_ready is initialized to 0. It is proper to
let main thread know we are ready when thread start running.

Current implementation works since ram_save_setup() calls
multifd_send_sync_main() which wake up send thread and posts
channels_ready. This behavior will introduce some unpredictable
situation and disturb the semaphore value.

This is a preparation patch to use another mechanism to do send thread
synchronization to avoid post channels_ready in this case. So this patch
posts channels_ready when send threads start running.
