travis-ci: skip a branch build if equal tag is present
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.
