[torqueusers] defining queues by user defined node features

One final problem, I had to change the queues so that they all have 
resource_min.nodes=1:x86 or resource_min.nodes=1:em64 in order have jobs 
that request more than one processor to get queued, however this means 
that qsub -l nodes=em64 will no longer work, nor will qsub -l 
nodes=n35:em64. Have I just made a mess of this, or do I need to add a 
set of serial queues as well?
