[workqueue/driver-core PATCH v2 2/5] async: Add support for queueing on specific NUMA node




This patch introduces four new variants of the async_schedule_ functions
that allow scheduling on a specific NUMA node.

The first two functions are async_schedule_near and
async_schedule_near_domain which end up mapping to async_schedule and
async_schedule_domain but provide NUMA node specific functionality. They
replace the original functions which were moved to inline function
definitions that call the new functions while passing NUMA_NO_NODE.

The second two functions are async_schedule_dev and
async_schedule_dev_domain which provide NUMA specific functionality when
passing a device as the data member and that device has a NUMA node other
than NUMA_NO_NODE.

The main motivation behind this is to address the need to be able to
schedule device specific init work on specific NUMA nodes in order to
improve performance of memory initialization.

v1->v2:
    Replaced call to queue_work_near with call to queue_work_node
