[gridengine users] Queue limit s_rt / h_rt and CheckPoint

Not sure if there is a better way, but the following seems to be working.

In the checkpoint scripts, the submit script, I am catching SIGUSR1 signal
and then issuing a qmod suspend the job with:

function SIGUSR1_HANDLER()
     qmod -sj $JOB_ID

So when "s_rt" is reached and the job receives SIGUSR1 signal, it suspends
the job via qmod.
