Subject: [PATCH] tick/broadcast: Remove redundant code in
 tick_check_new_device()

There is no way a timer used as broadcast clockevent device is also used as
percpu tick clockevent device currently.

It's better to put related code in tick_install_broadcast_device(), but I feel
it's harmless to give it back to the clockevents layer. Pls correct me if I'm
wrong.
