You could change the global queue_sort_method to seqno and then assign a sequence number that decreases with increasing bogomips.

To make things less confusing, it'd be advisable to classify the various bogompis ranges into host groups.  You only need to do this once (and thus can drop the bogomips from the reporting).

For example, you might have the following queue:

  name       foo
  hostlist   @hosts1 @hosts2 @hosts3 @hosts4
  seq_no     100,[@hosts2=110],[@hosts3=120],[@hosts4=130]

Your script just needs to categorize the host into one of the @hostsX host_groups based on the bogomips range and use either qconf -mhgrp or qconf -Mhgrp with the modified values.
