Worker threads number/affinity

Worker threads number/affinity

Consider, please, the ability to specify the affinity and/or number of worker threads during (parent) session initialization.
It will enable more efficient computational resources distribution in the following cases:
- imsdk-applications that have their own worker threads with high computational load;
- multiple processes using imsdk running in parallel;
- promote the use of only one particular NUMA-node (jointly with a custom BufferAllocator/FrameAllocator) by processors and memory.

Thank you for the input.  I'll pass the request to architects.

Old versions of Media SDK had this feature, but it has been deprecated (see mfxInfoMFX:NumThread).  For multiple processes in parallel, the MFXJoinSession capability is useful.
