Move the updating/setting of the ip-ifindex/ip-iface to one place.

Properties should be for the most part immutable/read-only, and only
at particular places modified. That way, it's easier to track who
changes a property.

Also, add a logging line with "ip-ifname" prefix.

Hi Dan,

I took the patch and merged it to nm-1-4:

I only changed to code-comment as it was no longer accurate. I did so,
by adding
+               *
+               * Backport: on master, we resolve the ifname anew via if_nametoindex().
+               *   For the backport, don't bother and look into the platform cache.
