Description of the change

This change adds a 5s delay into NM_POLICY's re-connect logic, specifically so that the retry_limit of the associated connection isn't exhausted immediately whenever the connection drops, which then used to result in a 5m timer being set.

There are two changes...

1. The afore-mentioned 5m timer is now reduced to 30s for modem devices. In theory, connections shouldn't be getting disabled anymore due to the above fix, so this is a just-in-case change.

2. The low-level NM_MODEM_OFONO code wasn't setting the modem state to DISCONNECTING when disconnect() was called. This is now done, and in the associated callback ( disconnect_cb ) the new state is now determined by the ofono cached properties ( online && powered && attached ).

Ofono bits probably should be folded in to the main patch; anything that touches the core NM code should be split out by itself, so that we can upstream just that independently from any ofono support code.

If you want, I could possibly do the patch mangling.

debian/patches/add_ofono_settings_support.patch: remove code
that added APN, USERNAME and PASSWORD to NM_SETTING_GSM object.
NM doesn't actually need access to these settings, and USERNAME/
PASSWORD can cause issues with NM's secrets needed logic.

debian/patches/lp1461593-add-modem-reconnect-delay-to-policy.patch: More changes
to NMModemOfono's modem_state handling. Added get/set_reset_retries_timeout
methods to NMSettingsConnection, and use the set method to lower the timeout for
ofono connections to 30s. Finally added a 5s delay to NM_POLICY's activation
logic triggered when a modem device is disconnected. This allows modem time to
settle and NM to process the resulting DBus state changes. (LP: #1461593)

Looks fine overall, though I've added some nitpicks inline. The extra delay/retries patches will need careful testing in a silo to make sure they don't break ModemManager, but they do look harmless.
