I noticed that our meters are still not quite 100%.

I think the fault lies on the s.SnapshotAccountReads handling. The SnapshotStorageReads/StorageReads were seemingly correct, because they did this litlte dance with pointers, to ensure that the final defer-method would update the correct counter, which the SnapshotAccountReads/AccountReads was missing.

When looking into it a bit, I found that it could be simplified. This slightly changes the semantics of the timer -- the timer measurement in this PR covers only the pure lookup from snapshot/trie, not the time for rlp decoding and other paths -- the time for that will wind up on the execution timer. I don't think either approach is more correct than the other, but it does simplify the code to do it like this. The alternative would be to add the same complex pointer-dance to the AccountReads handling.
