[c-nsp] PPPoE termination on 2620

While PPPoEoE will work on the 2620, it isn't officially "supported"
(we don't test broadband aggregation features on the low-end
platforms). That said, I doubt you will have problems with this type
of application. The 2600 has a maximum upper limit of 300 interfaces,
so that is one constraint. But I believe the CPU will be a bigger
constraint. I don't know how many sessions you are thinking or what
type of traffic load you expect in these deployments, but just keep an
eye on the CPU and you should be fine.
