A dbus API is needed to provide UI support for 802.1X network
provisioning. This proposal adds a method in Manager API that
can be used to provide a service configuration as a single string
that follows the format described in doc/config-format.txt.

Configuration string is passed inside a dictionary to provide some
flexibility. For example alternative syntaxes can be introduced

Unlike manager.ConnectService(), ProvisionService() will not try
to synchronously connect the service after creation, but instead
sets it as a favorite, to be auto-connected later if necessary.
