Bug Description

Apparently new connections cannot be added in NetworkManager.conf or /{etc,run}/NetworkManager/conf.d/* snippets, the [connection-*] sections can only modify existing connections. Thus for we need to write /run/NetworkManager/system-connections/ and NM's keyfile plugin needs to read these in addition to /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/. Like with conf.d/, files in /etc/ should override files in /run/.

  * debian/tests/{,nm}: Unblacklist the client test veth device
    from NetworkManager and re-enable the three tests to auto-connect to
    Ethernet interfaces.
  * Add Read-connections-from-run.patch: Read system-connections from /run.
    Like with the corresponding conf.d/, files in /etc/ trump files in /run.
