      settings: add ipv4.link-local flag · cbde63a4
      Adrian Freihofer authored and Thomas Haller's avatar Thomas Haller committed
      Introduction of a new setting ipv4.link-local, which enables
      link-local IP addresses concurrently with other IP address assignment
      implementations such as dhcp or manually.
      No way is implemented to obtain a link-local address as a fallback when
      dhcp does not respond (as dhcpd does, for example). This could be be
      added later.
      To maintain backward compatibility with ipv4.method ipv4.link-local has
      lower priority than ipv4.method. This results in:
      * method=link-local overrules link-local=disabled
      * method=disabled overrules link-local=enabled
      Furthermore, link-local=auto means that method defines whether
      link-local is enabled or disabled:
      * method=link-local --> link-local=enabled
      * else --> link-local=disabled
      The upside is, that this implementation requires no normalization.
      Normalization is confusing to implement, because to get it really
      right, we probably should support normalizing link-local based on
      method, but also vice versa. And since the method affects how other
      properties validate/normalize, it's hard to normalize that one, so that
      the result makes sense. Normalization is also often not great to the
      user, because it basically means to modify the profile based on other
      The downside is that the auto flag becomes API and exists because
      we need backward compatibility with ipv4.method.
      We would never add this flag, if we would redesign "ipv4.method"
      (by replacing by per-method-specific settings).
      Defining a default setting for ipv4.link-local in the global
      configuration is also supported.
      The default setting for the new property can be "default", since old
      users upgrading to a new version that supports ipv4.link-local will not
      have configured the global default in NetworkManager.conf. Therefore,
      they will always use the expected "auto" default unless they change
      their configuration.
