elements: Fix pad callbacks so they handle when parent goes away
1) We need to lock and get a strong ref to the parent, if still there. 2) If it has gone away, we need to handle that gracefully. This is necessary in order to safely modify a running pipeline. Has been observed when a streaming thread is doing a buffer_alloc() while an application thread sends an event on a pad further downstream, and from within a pad probe (holding STREAM_LOCK) carries out the pipeline plumbing while the streaming thread has its buffer_alloc() in progress.
