Why on the same machine? One duty of the checkpointing interface is  
to copy the local data from $TMPDIR to any intermediate storage and  
then to the new node when the job continues on another machine.

Then you don't need any checkpointing facitility. Just reschedule the  
job with: qmod -rj <job_id>

But why do you want to do this? When you know beforehand that the job  
will run longer then 5 minutes, then you could request this run time  
(-l h_rt) and SGE would automatically send the job to the correct queue.
