Description (partial)

Symptom:

When using bulk import to add devices to DCR, it does not check for invalid characters (such as "&") and will allow devices to be created with invalid characters. 

This will cause some portal applications, such as launching Hardware Summary / Software Summary reports from the RME portal to return a HTTP Status 500 error with the exception:

java.lang.NullPointerException
	java.util.Hashtable.put(Hashtable.java:401)
	com.cisco.nm.rmeng.inventory.reports.util.IRUtils.getDeviceDisplayNames(IRUtils.java:581)
	com.cisco.nm.rmeng.inventory.reports.ui.action.InventoryReportsAction.perform(InventoryReportsAction.java:772)
	org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.processActionPerform(ActionServlet.java:1786)
	org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.process(ActionServlet.java:1585)
	org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.doPost(ActionServlet.java:509)
	javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:709)
	javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:802)
