I could just use queue_work_on probably, but is there any issue if I am 
passing CPU values that are not in the wq_unbound_cpumask? That was 
mostly my concern. Also for an unbound queue do I need to worry about 
the hotplug lock? I wasn't sure if that was the case or not as I know it 
is called out as something to be concerned with using queue_work_on, but 
in __queue_work the value is just used to determine which node to grab a 
work queue from.

I forgot to address your question about the advantages. They are pretty 
significant. The test system I was working with was initializing 3TB of 
nvdimm memory per node. If the node is aligned it takes something like 
24 seconds, whereas an unaligned core can take 36 seconds or more.
