Fix deadlock in Linux firewire threads.

Fixes #9656

The deadlock was caused by a shared synchronization lock which was being
held by the main thread while waiting for the child thread to die, but the
child thread also uses that lock.  I put back in the lock looping code that
seemed unnecessary, but obviously was.
