Hello guys,

I hoped that somebody would beat me to add the Cisco WLC upstream...
Though there was a lot of interest in testing such a patch so here it
is.  Especially testing on versions 4.x is needed as I could test it
only on 5.2.x and 6.0.x.

The attached patch is heavily based on the scripts posted by Ryan West
here on rancid-discuss

The patch applies on top of 2.3.3 and the license of the portions done 
by me is as always "whatever it takes to get the patch accepted upstream".

My modifications:
- Rename ciscowlc5 to wlcrancid.
- Rename wlogin to wlclogin.
- Merge support for version 4.x into wlcrancid (*untested*).
- Add -V command line arg to wlclogin/wlcrancid.
- Remove the "!--WLC Begin Config Data--" markers.
- Cleanups in wlcrancid (indentation, whitespace).
- Added the needed configure/Makefile changes.

I might work on this items, when I get the time for it is a totally
different story.
- Add man pages for wlclogin/wlcrancid
- From the parsed info generate the headers (comments) that rancid adds,
   + !Chassis type:
   + !Processor ID:
   + !Image: Software:
- Get rid of the "!WLC Show Udi Start" and "!WLC Show Sysinfo Start"
   markers too.
