Bug Description

In case of streaming backups, innobackupex resumes the xtrabackup process and then waits for it to finish before running UNLOCK TABLES.

The problem is that in 2.0 streaming the log file from a temporary file is performed in the xtrabackup process and this process may take a long time to finish while unnecessarily keeping the database locked with FTWRL.
