alsasink: fix occasional crash intersecting invalid values

When a pipeline using alsasink and push mode upstream fails
to preroll, the following state will be the case:
- A loop upstream will be PAUSED, pushing a first buffer
- alsasink will be READY, pending PAUSED, because async

On error, the pipeline will switch to NULL. alsasink is in
READY, so goes to NULL immediately. It zeroes its cached
caps. Meanwhile, the upstream loop can cause a caps query,
conccurent with the state change. This will use those cached
caps. If the zeroing happens between the NULL test and the
dereferencing, GStreamer will critical down in the GstValue

Since it appears that such a gap between states (PAUSED
and pushing upstream, and NULL downstream) is expected, we
need to protect the read/write access to the cached caps.

This fixes the critical.
