isolate_migratepages_block() used rcu_read_lock() with the intention
of safeguarding against the mem_cgroup being destroyed concurrently;
but its TestClearPageLRU already protects against that.  Delete the
unnecessary rcu_read_lock() and _unlock().

Hugh Dickin' helped on commit log polishing, Thanks!
