Subject: [RESEND PATCH v3] sched/deadline: Remove unnecessary condition in push_dl_task()

pick_next_pushable_dl_task(rq) has BUG_ON(rq->cpu != task_cpu(task))
when it returns a task other than NULL, which means that task_cpu(task)
must be rq->cpu. So if task == next_task, then task_cpu(next_task) must
be rq->cpu as well. Remove the redundant condition and make code simpler.

By this patch, unnecessary one branch and two LOAD operations in 'if'
statement can be avoided.
