This is a similar problem as in tickets #195 and #196.

In icmp_echo(), icmp_globals.lock is locked. Then we acquire reply→mutex.

Before fibril_condvar_wait_timeout(), we must unlock icmp_globals.lock. After fibril_condvar_wait_timeout(), we should reacquire it, but not before we drop reply→mutex, which is still held.

We currently don't drop reply→mutex and therefore have two different locking schemes which may lead to a deadlock.
