[driver-core PATCH v6 0/9] Add NUMA aware async_schedule calls




This patch set provides functionality that will help to improve the
locality of the async_schedule calls used to provide deferred
initialization.

This patch set originally started out with me focused on just the one call
to async_schedule_domain in the nvdimm tree that was being used to
defer the device_add call however after doing some digging I realized the
scope of this was much broader than I had originally planned. As such I
went through and reworked the underlying infrastructure down to replacing
the queue_work call itself with a function of my own and opted to try and
provide a NUMA aware solution that would work for a broader audience.

RFC->v1:
    Dropped nvdimm patch to submit later.
        It relies on code in libnvdimm development tree.
    Simplified queue_work_near to just convert node into a CPU.
    Split up drivers core and PM core patches.
v1->v2:
    Renamed queue_work_near to queue_work_node
    Added WARN_ON_ONCE if we use queue_work_node with per-cpu workqueue
v2->v3:
    Added Acked-by for queue_work_node patch
    Continued rename from _near to _node to be consistent with queue_work_node
        Renamed async_schedule_near_domain to async_schedule_node_domain
        Renamed async_schedule_near to async_schedule_node
    Added kerneldoc for new async_schedule_XXX functions
    Updated patch description for patch 4 to include data on potential gains
v3->v4
    Added patch to consolidate use of need_parent_lock
    Make asynchronous driver probing explicit about use of drvdata
v4->v5
    Added patch to move async_synchronize_full to address deadlock
    Added bit async_probe to act as mutex for probe/remove calls
    Added back nvdimm patch as code it relies on is now in Linus's tree
    Incorporated review comments on parent & device locking consolidation
    Rebased on latest linux-next
v5->v6:
    Drop the "This patch" or "This change" from start of patch descriptions.
    Drop unnecessary parenthesis in first patch
    Use same wording for "selecting a CPU" in comments added in first patch
    Added kernel documentation for async_probe member of device
    Fixed up comments for async_schedule calls in patch 2
    Moved code related setting async driver out of device.h and into dd.c
    Added Reviewed-by for several patches
