RMS200519 - RMS-4405 Merge method: Merge on device name with SNMP sysName, first


Issue and Solution:
The new merge method 'Merge on device name with SNMP sysName, first' implemented.
This merge method is an approach to properly handle their Brocade switches (SNMP devices with many NICs).
They have many NICs with some of them having (all different) DNS names associated.
The 'Merge on device name' method doesn't work for them as this produces duplicates for each different DNS name.
The new merge method is supposed to work like 'Merge on device name' but priorizes the SNMP sysName over DNS name, NETBIOS name, MAC and IP.
