[torqueusers] Torque with MIC card

So we got a new node in that has 2 MIC cards and I thought it would be good to compile torque with support for it since that is available.

All went well as far as the compile/install, but...
It seems I have to install some of the MIC packages on all the nodes even without a MIC card installed.
In particular, I need to install :
intel-mic-2.1.6720-16.2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64.rpm
for dependency: intel-mic-kmod-2.1.6720-16.2.6.32.358.el6.x86_64.rpm
for dependency: intel-mic-flash-2.1.386-3.2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64.rpm
                intel-mic-gpl-2.1.6720-16.el6.x86_64.rpm

That is just to get the particular libraries: libcoi_host.so.0 and libscif.so.0
I also need to symlink libcoi_host.so.0 to be in /lib64 as well

If I don't do the above steps, pbs_mom will not start.

I suggest there be code in pbs_mom similar to the gpu code in that if the kernel driver is not loaded, pbs_mom does not bother with MIC code.

>From mom log on a host without a gpu:
20130808:08/08/2013 08:42:52;0001;   pbs_mom.3417;Svr;pbs_mom;LOG_DEBUG::main, Not using Nvidia gpu support even though built with --enable-nvidia-gpus
