[erlang-patches] small fix to mnesia_log:ets2dcd()

Use the synchronous log_terms instead of alog_terms in mnesia_log:ets2dcd()

This avoids the situation where mnesia could dump a very large ets table 
in its entirety into the message queue of the disk_log process, causing 
memory blowup and choking the disk logger.
