[rancid] simple D-Link support

Hi guys,

a couple of years ago, at my previous place of employment (Griffith College
Dublin), I patched fnlogin/fnrancid to support D-Link devices creating
dllogin and dlrancid.  I posted it to the mailing list at the time, but it
may have been updated a little bit since.  A few people have emailed me
since looking for the code, so I'm re-posting it here.

Looking at the code now, I suspect there are some chunks which are not
required for D-Link support and should be removed (I basically "made it
work" at the time without fully auditing what was in there).  I will try to
make time for this, though I have to confess I'm unsure when.

The code is in use and working fine on these models which we have available
to us:

      2x DES-3010F
      4x DES-3052P
     31x DES-3526
      6x DES-3550

I'm not sure if this is acceptable as a starting point for adding D-Link
support to Rancid or if it needs more work before it can go in.  If there
are specific requirements, please let me know and I'll try and work on it.
  Either way, the college have agreed to submit the code for use by the

Thanks for Rancid!
