Replace vyos-netplug with a VyOS link state monitor service
In progress, NormalPublic


There has been a desire to retire the aged vyos-netplug package in favor of an updated Python service to monitor link state. The simple design will wrap linux/netlink.h, linux/rtnetlink.h for use in a Python daemon to dispatch needed scripts upon changes in link state. This will in addition allow a cleaner integration with the proposed interface-monitor daemon (T3871).
