workqueue: don't use wq_select_unbound_cpu() for bound works

wq_select_unbound_cpu() is designed for unbound workqueues only, but
it's wrongly called when using a bound workqueue too.

Fixing this ensures work queued to a bound workqueue with
cpu=WORK_CPU_UNBOUND always runs on the local CPU.

Before, that would happen only if wq_unbound_cpumask happened to include
it (likely almost always the case), or was empty, or we got lucky with
forced round-robin placement.  So restricting
/sys/devices/virtual/workqueue/cpumask to a small subset of a machine's
CPUs would cause some bound work items to run unexpectedly there.
