We have two NVidia Tesla S1070s, attached via PCIe cables to two hosts,
meaning all 4 GPUs in each S1070, are available on a single host.  We
would love to have this separately schedulable from CPUs in the
Torque/Moab combination.  Basically, we'd love to have it detected as a
completely separate resource, in the same way that CPUs are detected and
managed separately from RAM, or Disk, etc.  At the moment we're
kinda/sorta faking it using GRES, but it has a few problems.

We're going to be testing a Fermi card as well, but it's not deployed yet.
