workqueue: move wq_numa_init() to workqueue_init()

While splitting up workqueue initialization into two parts,
ac8f73400782 ("workqueue: make workqueue available early during boot")
put wq_numa_init() into workqueue_init_early().  Unfortunately, on
some archs including power and arm64, cpu to node mapping isn't yet
established by the time the early init is called leading to incorrect
NUMA initialization and subsequently the following oops due to zero
cpumask on node-specific unbound pools.

  Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000038
  Faulting instruction address: 0xc0000000000fc0cc

Fix it by moving wq_numa_init() to workqueue_init().  As this means
that the early intialization may not have full NUMA info for per-cpu
pools and ignores NUMA affinity for unbound pools, fix them up from
workqueue_init() after wq_numa_init().
