Workqueue is just one of symptoms. We have the same problem for
memory allocation paths. It's either keeping cpu <-> node mapping
persistent or hunting down every case which may be affected and build
likely costly synchronization construct around it. It's not like we
have a lot of archs which support CPU hotplug and NUMA.
