FS#944 - firewall3 isn't holding iptables lock

I was first thinking that my missing iptables rules are related to the bug  FS#943 . But it looks like firewall3 is not holding the iptables lock via the option “-w”. This is unsafe because multiple iptables process may try to change a table at the same time and thus overwrite the final results of another iptables process.

The -w functionality for iptables-restore can be found in

The current iptables release is not supporting `-w` for iptables-restore and the mentioned commit is not easily backportable.

Unless the current iptables release is not implementing `-w` properly, we cannot support this feature. Consider protecting your other racing code with a call to "lock /var/run/fw3.lock".
