Fix for massively slow friends timeline query due to indexing bug introduced with repeats.

Sorting on notice.id when our primary selector was notice_inbox.user_id caused a filesort and table scan of the notice table.
Switchng to notice_inbox's notice_id means we can use our index, and everything comes right up.

Before:
mysql> explain SELECT notice.id AS id FROM notice JOIN notice_inbox ON notice.id = notice_inbox.notice_id WHERE notice_inbox.user_id = 18574 AND notice.repeat_of IS NULL ORDER BY notice.id DESC LIMIT 61 OFFSET 0;

+----+-------------+--------------+--------+------------------------------------+---------+---------+-------------------------------+--------+----------------------------------------------+

After:
mysql> explain SELECT notice.id AS id FROM notice JOIN notice_inbox ON notice.id = notice_inbox.notice_id WHERE notice_inbox.user_id = 18574 AND notice.repeat_of IS NULL ORDER BY notice_id DESC LIMIT 61 OFFSET 0;
