Subject[PATCH] blkcg: simplify statistic accumulation code
Some older compilers (gcc-4.4 through 4.6 in particular) struggle
with the way that blkg_rwstat_read() returns a structure, leading
to excessive stack usage and rather inefficient code:

block/blk-cgroup.c: In function 'blkg_destroy':
block/blk-cgroup.c:354:1: error: the frame size of 1296 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]
block/cfq-iosched.c: In function 'cfqg_stats_add_aux':
block/cfq-iosched.c:753:1: error: the frame size of 1928 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]
block/bfq-cgroup.c: In function 'bfqg_stats_add_aux':
block/bfq-cgroup.c:299:1: error: the frame size of 1928 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes [-Werror=frame-larger-than=]

I also notice that there is no point in using atomic accesses
for the local variables, so storing the temporaries in simple 'u64'
variables not only avoids the stack usage on older compilers but
also improves the object code on modern versions.

Fixes: e6269c445467 ("blkcg: add blkg_[rw]stat->aux_cnt and replace cfq_group->dead_stats with it")
