wq generates the numa affinity (pool->node) for all the possible cpu's
per cpu workqueue at init stage, that means the affinity of currently un-present
ones' may be incorrect, so we need to update the pool->node for the new added cpu
to the correct node when preparing online, otherwise it will try to create worker
on invalid node if node hotplug occurred.

Gu
