conman: React to mwifiex firmware resets.
When the mwifiex firmware resets, its interfaces are recreated (and
hotplug touches a file in /tmp/interfaces). This causes
wpa_supplicant to get disconnected. Simply calling "wifi setclient"
again is a no-op, because /bin/wifi compares the new wpa_supplicant
config to the existing one, and exits if there is no change (and
wpa_supplicant is running). There is a --force-restart /bin/wifi
option that overrides this behavior.
In practice, after an mwifiex reset, we sometimes see conman try to
re-run "wifi setclient" only for /bin/wifi to treat it as a no-op.
This causes conman to attempt to reprovision, which delays rejoining
This commit watches the files touched by hotplug with inotify, and
when they are touched, adds --force-restart to the next wifi setclient
