Matching Interface using MAC address

New feature in nmstate 2.2.10.

Introduce two properties to base interface:

When identifier been set to mac-address, nmstate will not use interface.name for NIC matching but use the interface.mac-address, The interface.name will be used for profile-name when storing the network configuration in backend.

The profile-name will be hide if it is equal to interface name.

Example on creating MAC based profile:

  - name: wan0
    type: ethernet
    state: up
    identifier: mac-address
    mac-address: 1e:bd:23:e9:fb:94
      enabled: true
      dhcp: true
      enabled: true
      dhcp: true
      autoconf: true

Above profile could be delete by state:absent using name: wan0 or its real interface name.
