time, acct: Drop irq save & restore from __acct_update_integrals()
It looks like all the call paths that lead to __acct_update_integrals() already have irqs disabled, and __acct_update_integrals() does not need to disable irqs itself. This is very convenient since about half the CPU time left in this function was spent in local_irq_save alone. Performance of a microbenchmark that calls an invalid syscall ten million times in a row on a nohz_full CPU improves 21% vs. 4.5-rc1 with both the removal of divisions from __acct_update_integrals() and this patch, with runtime dropping from 3.7 to 2.9 seconds. With these patches applied, the highest remaining cpu user in the trace is native_sched_clock, which is addressed in the next patch. For testing purposes I stuck a WARN_ON(!irqs_disabled()) test in __acct_update_integrals(). It did not trigger.
