Issue
=====
With the current implementation, when calling the `wait_on_file()`
function with the `file_exist` parameter set to false the function will
return even if the target file exists.

In a scenario where we enter the loop and the targer file exist, the
first call to `stat()` will return 0 and will not enter any of the `if`
and break from the loop directly.

Solution
========
If the file exists, only break from the loop if it's the desired exit
condition.
