platform: link management
Create the new nm-platform framework and implement link (or interface) management. The nm-platform serves as the point of contact between the rest of NetworkManager and the operating system. There are two backends for nm-platform: * NMFakePlatform: Fake kernel backend for testing purposes * NMLinuxPlatform: Linux kernel backend for actual use A comprehensive testsuite is included and will be extended with new feature additions. To enable the Linux part of the testsuite, use --enable-tests=root configure options and run 'make check' as root. Use --enable-code-coverage for code coverage support. ./autogen.sh --enable-tests=root --enable-code-coverage make make -C src/platform check-code-coverage Link features: * Retrieve the list of links * Translate between indexes and names * Discover device type * Add/remove dummy interfaces (for testing) Thanks to Thomas Graf for helping with libnl3 synchronization issues.
