[c-nsp] SFP's (Third party) for ME3600

Similar issues here.  The only 1000BaseT SFPs that we've gotten to work 
are the Cisco branded ones.  Some of the other brands/manufacturers 
we've used have given mixed results.  In one instance we had plugged in 
a 10/100/1000 SFP and tried connecting it to a Cisco 3750 FE port.  The 
FE port on the 3750 would come up but it would not come up on the 3600X 
side.  Swapping the SFP with a Cisco branded one would resolve the issue 
most of the time.  The 3600X has proven to be one of the more finicky 
switches in terms of accepting non Cisco branded SFPs.
