Sorry, this patch is completely wrong. It immediately breaks
flush_workqueue/cancel_workqueue functions.

And I personally think it is not very useful, even if it was correct.
You can create your own workqueue and change the priority of cwq->thread.

Side note, looks like you use some strange kernel. This raw_smp_processor_id()
above is wrong.
