Subject[driver-core PATCH v4 5/6] driver core: Attach devices on CPU local to device node
This change makes it so that we call the asynchronous probe routines on a
CPU local to the device node. By doing this we should be able to improve
our initialization time significantly as we can avoid having to access the
device from a remote node which may introduce higher latency.

For example, in the case of initializing memory for NVDIMM this can have a
singifcant impact as initialing 3TB on remote node can take up to 39
seconds while initialing it on a local node only takes 23 seconds. It is
situations like this where we will see the biggest improvement.
