Instead we need to make sure the set_*numa_node() functions are called
earlier before secondary cpus are booted. My suggested change for that
is this:

I have tested the code and it properly sets up all per-cpu workqueues.


Thanks Robert,

I have tested a slightly modified version of that, and it seems to also fix the problem for me.

I will submit a cleaned up patch.

Unfortunately either your nor my code does fix the BUG_ON() I see with
the numa kernel:

  kernel BUG at mm/page_alloc.c:1848!

See below for the core dump. It looks like this happens due to moving
a mem block where first and last page are mapped to different numa
nodes, thus, triggering the BUG_ON().

Continuing with my investigations...
