Subject: [PATCH v3 3/3] sched/cpuacct: remove redundant RCU read lock

The cpuacct_account_field() and it's cgroup v2 wrapper
cgroup_account_cputime_field() is only called from cputime
in task_group_account_field(), which is already in RCU read-side
critical section. So remove these redundant RCU read lock.
