Bug Description

the raspberry Pi uses an smsc95xx USB NIC ... there is an ancient bug with this hardware (Bug #664477) that requires that vm.min_free_kbytes is set to 8192 in the sysctl settings. while it is possible to ship a /system/etc/sysctl.d/nn-smsc95xx.conf file in the device tarball, once this is switched to be a snap package we need a way to allow shipping such files and potentially adjust their values via snappy config.
