Subject[PATCH 2/2] sched/deadline: fix start high-res preemption tick for a non-running task
Queued ticks are scheduled to match the budget, which means the budget 
is overall consumed and the dl task should be throttled. Dl task will
be replenished immediately if fail to start a dl timer.

However, the curr maybe not the left most dl task in the rb tree any
more after this immediately replenished and reschedule is needed.
Start high-res preemption tick for this upcoming rescheduled dl task
is not correct.

This patch fix it by not starting high-res preemption tick for a
non-running dl task.
