Patch file to fix this issue in NetworkManager 1.16.0

Description of problem:
Since NetworkManager 1.14.x, keyfile plugin cannot work properly.

When you set a network device in /etc/network/interface, NetworkManager still use DHCP to obtain the IP address.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.14.x ~ 1.16.0

How reproducible:

set eth0 to static in /etc/network/interface

Actual results:

NetworkManager reports "nm-settings.c xxx: assertion 'failed' "

Expected results:

NetworkManager can set IP address correctly

Additional info:

I have already addressed the bug, it is a typo in file 

And I have already submitted the bug report and patch file at NetworkManager's bug tracker, following is the URL

However, it seems that no one cares about this bug.
So I try to submit this bug at Fedora bugzilla. Please someone push the NetworkManager team to fix this ugly typo.

Attached is the patch for NetworkManager 1.16.0
