Fix fixpoint divide exception in acct_update_integrals

So in acct_update_integrals we may end up with the following scenario: Between reading tsk->stime/tsk->utime and tsk->acct_timexpd an interrupt happens which updates accouting values. This causes acct_timexpd to be greater than the former stime + utime. The subsequent calculation of dtime = cputime_sub(time, tsk->acct_timexpd); will be negative and the division performed by cputime_to_jiffies(dtime) will generate an exception since the result won't fit into a 32 bit register. In order to fix this just always disable interrupts while accessing any of the accounting values.
