The RIOT community cares a lot about code quality.
Therefore, before describing what your contribution is about, we would like
you to make sure that your modifications are compliant with the RIOT
coding conventions, see https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/Coding-conventions.

### Contribution description

This PR is an attempt to fix the static tests performed by github actions when they are run on master.

After #15437 was merged the actions failed on master: https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/runs/1411760887?check_suite_focus=true.
This is because one of the steps fetch the master branch locally but this is not allowed when git is already on branch master.

The proposed solution of this PR is to fetch master in a separate branch and set this branch in `CI_BASE_BRANCH` env.

Another solution could be to not run the static-test on push to master but if we could avoid that, it's better IMHO.

Put here the description of your contribution:
- describe which part(s) of RIOT is (are) involved
- if it's a bug fix, describe the bug that it solves and how it is solved
- you can also give more information to reviewers about how to test your changes

### Testing procedure

- a green static test for the PR
- the result of this PR can only be checked once merged in master

Details steps to test your contribution:
- which test/example to compile for which board and is there a 'test' command
- how to know that it was not working/available in master
- the expected success test output
