Save TaskRecord before calling performClearTaskLocked.

If the activity exists in a task that is in persistent storage, the
task reference will be cleared when its brought to the foreground in
this method. Alternatively, if the activity is finished immediately
as a result of clearing task, the task reference will be lost.

Therefore, we must persist the task reference before calling it.
