pulsesink: release pa_shared_resource_mutex before pa_threaded_mainloop_wait

Not doing so can result in a deadlock when two threads enter
gst_pulseringbuffer_open_device at the same time, as
pa_threaded_mainloop_wait releases the mainloop lock while waiting,
allowing another thread to take it, resulting in a deadlock as two
threads waits for the lock the other is holding.
