libnm-util: allow unknown setting types in nm_connection_get_virtual_iface_name()

Allow calling nm_connection_get_virtual_iface_name() on a non-verified
connection by not asserting asserting against a valid base-setting.

On nma-1-0 branch, nm-applet can crash with:

    #3  0x00007ffff2993a7a in g_assertion_message_expr (domain=0x7ffff51fad86 "libnm-util", file=0x7ffff51fb728 "nm-connection.c", line=320, func=0x7ffff51fc028 "_get_type_setting", expr=<optimized out>) at gtestutils.c:2444

where the connection type is "tun".

Note that libnm accepts invalid connections and exposes them to the
user (albeit issuing a warning). Later on there are many places where
that can lead to further g_return*(), which is ugly indeed.
At least, we should not assert against valid connections (because that
crashes the user) and there is a well known fact that the base setting
will be missing for tun settings. No need to even warn about that in
nm_connection_get_virtual_iface_name() (we already got the warning
during replace_settings).
