Yeah, it's all in wq_select_unbound_cpu().  Right now, if the
requested cpu isn't in wq_unbound_cpumask, it falls back to dumb
round-robin.  We can probably do better there and find the nearest
node considering topology.

Hmm... yeah, let's just use queue_work_on() for now.  We can sort it
out later and users could already do that anyway.

Thanks.
