      Description

      This change is necessary for GEODE-77. It's easier to complete on its own feature branch and then be cherry-picked over to feature/GEODE-77.

      Geode configures Log4J2 using a system property, however, if a configuration file is already found on the classpath then it will defer configuration to that file. The new JGroups jar contains a log4j2.xml config file in its root, so Log4J2 finds it on the classpath and always uses it instead of Geode's log4j2-default.xml.

      This change would involve moving Geode's log4j2-default.xml to the root of the gemfire-core jar file and rename it to log4j2.xml. The gemfire-core jar would then be placed earlier on the classpath than the jgroups jar so that the default configuration of Geode prefers the one in the gemfire-core jar.
