use MulticastLock for better Bonjour/mDNS performance

Multicast transmission is subject to heavy power management on Android,
because it apparently can be a battery drain. mDNS/Bonjour is based
entirely on multicast, so in order to have good Bonjour performance, there
needs to be good multicast performance. MulticastLock provides that.
