    core: fix auto-activation of ignore-carrier devices when carrier appears (rh #1076592) · 3302fba2
    Dan Williams authored
    If a device had its carrier ignored, and did not have a carrier on startup,
    then NetworkManager would not re-check autoconnect connections when the
    device's carrier appeared.  Because ignore-carrier devices are always
    in DISCONNECTED state when they are managed, the nm-device.c::carrier_changed()
    code essentially did nothing when the carrier appeared.  It needs to
    also trigger an auto-activation recheck signal when the carrier appears
    to ensure that now-valid connections (like those that require DHCP or
    IPv6) can be auto-activated.
