all: add support for thunderbolt networking

System Internals / NetworkManager - Christian Kellner [kellner.me] - 19 April 2018 12:20 EDT

Load the thunderbolt-net module if we see a host-to-host connection and configure the resulting ethernet connection automatically to be a link-local only one. The latter is done by setting a new udev property "NM_AUTO_DEFAULT_LINK_LOCAL_ONLY" which is picked up when we configure the connection for the device.
