[PATCH][gdb/testsuite] Fix command result testing in mi-complete.exp


When running gdb.mi/mi-complete.exp in conjunction with:
$ stress -c $(($(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -c "^processor") + 1))
we get less than 50% full passes:
$ for n in  $(seq 1 100); do \
    make V=1 -O check \
      'RUNTESTFLAGS=gdb.mi/mi-complete.exp --target_board=unix'; \
  done 2>&1 \
  | grep "expected passes" | sort | uniq -c
     45 # of expected passes            7
      9 # of expected passes            8
     46 # of expected passes            9

A diff between a passing and failing gdb.log shows this difference:
-&"set max-completions 1\n"
 2-complete br
+&"set max-completions 1\n"

The problem is that the test-case issues the "set max-completion <n>" command,
and without waiting for the output issues a next command, and tries to parse
the results of both commands, expecting a specific interleaving of the various
output streams.

Fix the FAIL by waiting for the result of the "set max-completion <n>" command
before issuing another command.

Tested on x86_64-linux.

OK for trunk?
