Commit 2a84108 cleans the remaining pending log item entries
when log recovery fails. Unfortunately, the cleaning call was
not removed from the error path in xlog_recover_commit_trans,
This can result in a use after free and a second free of the
transaction structure when the cleaning is done in

Now the log item entry cleaning in xlog_recover_commit_trans
is only performed for the non-error case.
