So, the fix's grand design should be

1. drop old pwq/pools only at node offline.
2. set proper pool->node based on online node info.
3. update pool->node of per-cpu-pool at cpu ONLINE.

Hm. (1) is done because cpumask_of_node() turns to be zero-filled
after all cpus on a node offlined.

But, cpu-to-node relationship cannot be available until a cpu get onlined.
It changes at every cpu onlining. So, at node online, refleshing cpumasks
of workqueues only after _all_ cpus on node are onlined seems to be the only way
but I'm not sure how to get a mask of possible cpus on a node.

Possible another way may be using auto numa balancing's numa node hint for worker scheduling.

Do you have any idea ?

Thanks,
-Kame
