    First, the stack-level createVlan() function no longer takes as an
    argument a list of devices the VLAN exists on, since it looks like
    this will never be needed.
    In it's place, createVlan() now takes a list of ports, so that it can
    (if so desired) put the ports in the VLAN without a seperate lock and
    The snmpit_intel module now uses its 'nested locking' feature to avoid
    additional locking in these cases. Note though, that the way that this
    is done is not safe for multiple switches in a stack. If we ever have
    to support multiple Intels (looks doubtful), this will have to be
    removed, or locking will need to be moved a level up to
    snmpit_intel_stack . Yuck.
    For Intels, the removeVlan() function calls removePortsFromVlan()
    itself, again to save locking overhead. The Cisco behavior, however,
    is unchanged, as locking is not expensive, and this would be too
