manager: fix assumption of child connections with autoconnect=no

During startup, when a link is detected (enp0s25 in the example below)
we try to create also virtual devices (ipip1) on it through
system_create_virtual_device(), however this realizes only devices for
connections which can autoactivate.

To support the assumption of child devices with autoconnect=no, we
should take in consideration in retry_connections_for_parent_device()
only connections for which the link does not exist, and let existing
links be handled by platform_link_added(), which also realizes them.

 $ nmcli c add type ip-tunnel ifname ipip1 con-name ipip1+ autoconnect no \
               mode ipip remote dev enp0s25 ip4
 $ nmcli c up ipip1+
 $ systemctl restart NetworkManager

 * before: ipip1+ is not assumed, ipip1 is not present in 'nmcli d' output
 * after:  ipip1+ is assumed, ipip1 detected
