ifnet: track connections by UUID not conf.d net connection name

We'll need this for later with unsaved connections.  The ifnet
plugin previously tracked connections by the "conn_name" which
was derived from keys in the /etc/conf.d/net file.  These keys
take two forms:

1) interface name


2) wifi SSID, either text or hex-encoded:


The conf.d net connection name is apparently usually an interface
name, so when writing to /etc/conf.d/net the NM connection name is
changed from eg "Ethernet connection 1" to the next available
interface name based on the type of connection, eg "eth0".

The ifnet plugin actively removed connections that were not present
in /etc/conf.d/net during the reload_connections() call, but in the
future we'll want to allow unsaved connections which in the case of
ifnet clearly won't yet be written to the file.  Since only
connections written to the file have a "conn_name", tracking
connections by conn_name no longer works.
