wifi: don't touch by default current powersave setting

System Internals / NetworkManager - Beniamino Galvani [redhat.com] - 15 February 2016 17:18 EST

Some drivers (or things outside NM like 'powertop') may turn powersave on, so don't touch it unless explicitly configured by user.

To achieve this, add new 'default' and 'ignore' options; the former can be used to fall back to a globally configured setting, while the latter tells NM not to touch the current setting.

When 'default' is specified, a missing global default configuration is equivalent to 'ignore'.

It is possible to enable Wi-Fi power saving for all connections by dropping a file in /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d with the following content:

[connection] wifi.powersave=3
