core: fix wrongly generating "Wired connection 1" (auto-default) for ethernet with MAC

If a profile has only "ethernet.mac-address" set, but
"connection.interface-name" not, then the previous check

    iface = nm_setting_connection_get_interface_name (s_con);
    if (!nm_streq0 (iface, nm_device_get_iface (device)))

would wrongly consider the profile not matching for the device.
As a result, we would wrongly create a auto-default connection.

Fix that. We already call nm_device_check_connection_compatible()
above. That is fully suitable to compare the interface name and
the MAC address. We don't need to duplicate this check (wrongly).

See also commit 77d01c90 ('settings: ignore incompatible connections
when looking for existing ones') for how this code changed.
