I'm a bit worried about the fact we're hiding actual issues -
E.g., if for some [unexpected] reason a vlan configuration ramrod would
fail, the only effect it will have is that we'll try [and probably fail] to
change HW into any-vlan mode; We won't propagate the error back to

Having written that, since we can't really avoid this in some scenarios
 [I.e., if we accept the command while down and configure it later while
up we can't do anything with an error if it occurs], I guess that's the pros
out-weight the cons here.
