So the only issue is that I was hoping to get away with not having to 
add additional preemption. That was the motivation behind doing 
queue_work_near as I could just wrap it all in the same local_irq_save 
that way I don't have to worry about the CPU I am on changing.

What I may look at doing is just greatly reducing the 
workqueue_select_unbound_cpu_near function to essentially just perform a 
few tests and then will just use the results from a cpumask_any_and of 
the cpumask_of_node and the cpu_online_mask. I'll probably rename it 
while I am at it since I am going to probably be getting away from the 
"unbound" checks in the logic.
