A reboot of one switch in an MC-LAG bond makes all bond links
to go down, causing a total connectivity loss for 3 seconds.

Packet capture shows that spurious LACP PDUs are sent to OVS with
a different MAC address (partner system id) during the final
stages of the MC-LAG switch reboot.

The current code selects a lead interface based on information
in the LACP PDU, regardless of its synchronization state. If a
non-synchronized interface is selected as the OVS lead interface
then all other interfaces are forced down as their stored partner
system id differs and the bond ends up with no working interface.
The bond recovers within three seconds after the last spurious
message.

To avoid the problem, this commit requires a lead interface
to be synchronized. In case no synchronized interface exists,
the selection of lead interface is done as in the current code.
