So if I understand what you are saying correctly we default to 
round-robin on a given node has no CPUs attached to it. I could probably 
work with that if that is the default behavior instead of adding much of 
the complexity I already have.

The question I have then is what should I do about workqueues that 
aren't WQ_UNBOUND if they attempt to use queue_work_near? In that case I 
should be looking for some way to go from a node to a CPU shouldn't I? 
If so should I look at doing something like wq_select_unbound_cpu that 
uses the node cpumask instead of the wq_unbound_cpumask?
