policy: consider additional assumed routes when synchronizing the default route

Don't only consider the best route of assumed devices when syncing the route
metrics. This fixes the following scenario:

Have em1 assumed, with two default routes (metric 20 and 21).
When activating em2, NMDefaultRouteManager would  have determined
21 as the effective metric, thus replacing the assumed route of em1.

Since we don't want to touch assumed interfaces, it is wrong to
replace their default routes.

Instead, keep track of all the assumed default routes and consider their
metrics when choosing effective_metric.
