  Log Message:
  fips: use memory ordering rather than locks

The FIPS provider accesses it's current state under lock.
This is overkill, little or no synchronisation is actually required in
practice (because it's essentially a read only setting).  Switch to using
TSAN operations in preference.

Fixes #21179
