SubjectRe: [PATCH] sched/cputime: Remove unnecessary assignment statement

Why does coverity care? I like the way the code is now, it makes
conceptual sense. Removing that assignment makes the code harder to read
and less symmetric (see the utime case right below).

Any sensible compiler will 'fix' this for us anyway.
