Commit 8565c3ab537e78f3e69977ec2c609dc9417a806e ("qemu-iotests: fix
185") identified a race condition in a sub-test.

Similar issues also affect the other sub-tests.  If disk I/O completes
quickly, it races with the QMP 'quit' command.  This causes spurious
test failures because QMP events are emitted in an unpredictable order.

This test relies on QEMU internals and there is no QMP API for getting
deterministic behavior needed to make this test 100% reliable.  At the
same time, the test is useful and it would be a shame to remove it.

Add sleep 0.5 to reduce the chance of races.  This is not a real fix but
appears to reduce spurious failures in practice.
