Description of problem:
volume-snapshot.t is failing spuriously because of having additional test cases which restarts glusterd. Currently glusterd doesn't have a mechanism to indicate that volumes handshaking has been completed or not, due to this even if the peer handshaking finishes and triggering a volume based command might end up in a corruption as volume handshaking is still in progress.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

tests: remove unwanted tests from volume-snapshot.t
volume-snapshot.t failspuriously because of having additional test cases
which restarts glusterd and they are really not needed as far as the test
coverage is concerned. Currently glusterd doesn't have a mechanism to indicate
that volumes handshaking has been completed or not, due to this even if the peer
handshaking finishes and all the peers are back to the cluster there could be a
case where any command which accesses the volume structure might end up in
corruption as volume handshaking is still in progress. This is because of volume
list is still not been made URCU protected.
