[mrtg] DSCP/COS stats on Cisco router

Initially I attempt to make this a cfgmaker interface template but I ran into problems because I needed to base the indexes off of cbQosIfIndex (. and not the regular mib2 interfaces index. However I also had to get the port descriptions from mib2 IfDescr, and port speeds from mib2 ifSpeed, and combine those tables with the cbQosIfIndex table to make a useful MRTG target.
Then there were issues with classes that had undefined speeds and classnames so those had to be sanity checked and potentially skipped. That is what those warnings on lines 247 and 255 are.

Bottom line is that while I prefer to use something more standardized and portable like cfgmaker templates, this cbqos mib just had too many oddball exceptions.

This looks useful (even though I'm not 100% certain what these MIB items are
:) ) ; however, it might be a good idea to change it into a cfgmaker host
template and/or interface template?  That way, one could hook it in on a
generic cfgmaker run -- and if it can be made to probe for the objects
existence and have a null operation on an incompatible device it would be able
to be merged with a generic host template...
