Set WQ_SYSFS on all workqueues that we create so that we have a means to
monitor cpu affinity and whatnot for background workers.

This is just used for log I/O completions which are effectlively single
thread.  I don't see any reason to adjust the parameters here.

This one also hasn't ever been something we tune, so I don't think there
is a good case for enabling WQ_SYSFS.

I've stopped here.  I think we should have a good use case for making
workqueues show up in sysfs based on that we:

 a) have resons to adjust them ever
 b) actually having them easily discoverable and documented for adminds
    to tune

Yeah, the only ones I want to push for (and hence document) are
quotacheck, background blockgc, and (in 5.13) background inode
inactivation.

TBH I think the only workqueues we really ought to expose publicly are
the unbound ones, since they represent kernel threads that can log
transactions, and hence are known to have a performance impact that
sysadmins could tune reasonably.

Dave suggests exposing them all on a debug kernel, of course. :)

Looks fine to me.
