This is about half done. I wrote a script to parse dhcpd.conf and spit
out vyatta commands.
I've added host entries to bikeshed. Unforunately vyatta's command syntax
doesn't allow for per-host dhcpd.conf entries. I will work on fixing
The DHCP server is disabled for now until I have a chance to be in the
space to make sure it works correctly.

This is also done, I added all of the static mappings in /etc/hosts on
r00ter to dnsmasq on bikeshed.

We will need to attach bikeshed to the sonic subnet and assign it an IP
before we can do port forwarding.

I added some QoS params to bikeshed already.
