I am using unbound workqueues. However there isn't an interface that 
exposes the NUMA bits of them directly. All I am doing with this patch 
is adding "queue_work_near" which takes a NUMA node as an argument and 
then copies the logic of "queue_work_on" with the exception that I am 
doing a check to verify that there is an intersection between 
wq_unbound_cpumask and the cpumask of the node, and then passing a CPU 
from that intersection into "__queue_work".

Thanks.

I am using unbound workqueues. However there isn't an interface that 
exposes the NUMA bits of them directly. All I am doing with this patch 
is adding "queue_work_near" which takes a NUMA node as an argument and 
then copies the logic of "queue_work_on" with the exception that I am
