    Changes to support the SPP nodes. My approach was a little odd. · fd015646

    What I did was create node table entries for the three SPP nodes.
    These are designated as local, shared nodes, reserved to a holding
    experiment. This allowed me to use all of the existing shared node
    pool support, albeit with a couple of tweaks in libvtop that I will
    not bother to mention since they are hideous (another thing I need to
    The virtual nodes that are created on the spp nodes are figments; they
    will never be setup, booted or torn down. They exist simply as place
    holders in the DB, in order hold the reserved bandwidth on the network
    interfaces. In other words, you can create as many of these imaginary
    spp nodes (in different slices if you like) as there are interfaces on
    the spp node. Or you can create a single spp imaginary node with all
    of the interfaces. You get the idea; its the reserved bandwidth that
    drives the allocation.
    There are also some minor spp specific changes in vnode_setup.in to
    avoid trying to generalize things. I will return to this later as
