Bugs: MESOS-6937

Repository: mesos


In `process::internal::Loop`, we intend to synchronize all
accesses to the `discard` member, since otherwise there would
be a race between setting and calling this lambda. However,
one assignment of the member remains unsynchronized. This
patch synchronizes this assignment to avoid a race.

A "double free or corruption" error was showing up consistently on the ASF CI when calling
`Pipe::Reader::readAll` within `ProcessBase::visit(const HttpEvent&)`. Unfortunately,
a local reproduction of this bug has not been possible thus far. To test, a branch with this
patch applied was built multiple times on the ASF CI to confirm that the error did not appear
after this fix.
