[PATCH v1 2/2] travis-ci: skip a branch build if equal tag is present

From: Lars Schneider <larsxschneider@xxxxxxxxx>

If we push a branch and a tag pointing to the HEAD of this branch,
then Travis CI would run the build twice. This wastes resources and
slows the testing.

Add a function to detect this situation and skip the build the branch
if appropriate. Invoke this function on every build.
