    core: implement activation of PPP devices · 6c319593

    Add code to NMPppDevice to activate new-style PPPoE connections. This
    is a bit tricky because we can't create the link as usual in
    create_and_realize(). Instead, we create a device without ifindex and
    start pppd in stage2; when pppd reports a new configuration, we rename
    the platform link to the correct name and set the ifindex into the
    device.
    
    This mechanism is inherently racy, but there is no way to tell pppd to
    create an arbitrary interface name.
