    Block layer uses workqueues for multiple purposes. There is no real dependency
    of scheduling these on the cpu which scheduled them.
    
    On a idle system, it is observed that and idle cpu wakes up many times just to
    service this work. It would be better if we can schedule it on a cpu which the
    scheduler believes to be the most appropriate one.
    
    This patch replaces normal workqueues with power efficient versions.
