Fix lock inversion in forced shutdown.

Recent changes to xlog_state_release_iclog() placed the grant_lock
inside the icloglock. forced unmount of the log does this the opposite
way around, but does not depend on the order for correct working.
Fix the inversion by changing the order locks are gained in
