manager: don't activate device if the parent is missing [bg/device-parent-rh1774074]

Beniamino Galvani requested to merge bg/device-parent-rh1774074 into master

In multiple places we currently proceed to creating a virtual device even if the connection specifies a parent device which is missing. This can be easily reproduced with:

nmcli con add type vxlan ifname vxlan1
vxlan.parent not-exists
id 43 remote

which creates a vxlan1 interface without activating any connection. Add a check to prevent this.
