You can use USE_CGROUPS in the execd_params of sge_conf to enable cpuset
enforcement of CPUs this should limit you to the CPUs that gridengine has 
assigned.  At UCL we don't use that anymore because we want to control memory 
via cgroups as well and have prolog and epilog scripts setting things up.
