tick/broadcast: Use for_each_cpu() specially on UP kernels

for_each_cpu() unintuitively reports CPU0 as set independent of the actual
cpumask content on UP kernels. This causes an unexpected PIT interrupt
storm on a UP kernel running in an SMP virtual machine on Hyper-V, and as
a result, the virtual machine can suffer from a strange random delay of 1~20
minutes during boot-up, and sometimes it can hang forever.

Protect if by checking whether the cpumask is empty before entering the
for_each_cpu() loop.

[ tglx: Use !IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_SMP) instead of #ifdeffery ]
