IRQs are left disabled for the zone and node VM event counters. This is
unnecessary as the affected counters are allowed to race for preemmption
and IRQs.

This patch reduces the scope of IRQs being disabled
via local_[lock|unlock]_irq on !PREEMPT_RT kernels. One
__mod_zone_freepage_state is still called with IRQs disabled. While this
could be moved out, it's not free on all architectures as some require
IRQs to be disabled for mod_zone_page_state on !PREEMPT_RT kernels.
