This was originally to guard the case that an entity was running on
stale (from a previous period) quota resulting in cfs_bandwidth->idle
and the timer not being re-instantiated.

Now that expiration is properly integrated I think the two cases are
analogous and that this can be dropped (and the start moved into the
(nr_running == 1) entity case on enqueue).

I think this is correct but my brain's a little fuzzy right now, will
confirm in the morning.
