core: don't create virtual interfaces we already have

Make sure we don't already have an NMDevice for this interface
before creating it, and also when creating the interface, make
a new NMDevice for it immediately to prevent a race between
telling the kernel to create the interface via netlink, and when
udev later tells us about it.  In between there we could be
triggered to try creating the interface again.
