# This function as the main assign loop.  It converts the virtual
# topology into a top input including LAN and delay translation.  It
# then snapshots the current testbed physical state and runs assign,
# looping a couple times if assign fails.  When assign successfully
# completes it will interpret the results.  Attempt to match any
# existing portmap entries and then update the delays and vlans table.
#
# XXX Internally created nodes (jailhost,delay,sim) are not treated
#     consistently. Needs more thought.
#
# Return codes: We catch all errors with the END block below, and if
# anyone calls die() (exit value is 255) we add in the CANRECOVER bit.
# Failures in assign always cause the caller to stop retrying. 
#
# The CANRECOVER bit indicates 'recoverability' (no db or physical
29
# state was modified by the time the error occurred). This is relevant
