Fix xm man page statement about asynchonous operation

The man page for xm command states that many commands acts
asynchronously which is not true. According to my experience most
commands does act synchronously with several exceptions, like create,
shutdown, mem-set and vcpu-set commands so this fixes the paragraph
available in this xm man page.
