Retain ordering of finalizers during GC (#7160)

This came up since the addition of C finalizers, since Haskell
finalizers are already stored in an explicit list.  C finalizers on
the other hand get a WEAK object each, so in order to run them in the
right order we have to make sure that list stays in the correct
order.  I hate adding new invariants, but this is the quickest way to
fix the bug for now.  A better way to fix it would be to have a single
WEAK object with a list of finaliers attached to it, and a primop
for adding finalizers to the list.
