Subject: [PATCH] net: core: explicitly call linkwatch_fire_event to speed up the startup of network services

The linkwatch_event work queue runs up to one second later.
When the MicroVM starts, it takes 300+ms for the ethX flag
to change from '+UP +LOWER_UP' to '+RUNNING', as follows:
Jul 20 22:00:47.432552 systemd-networkd[210]: eth0: bringing link up
...
Jul 20 22:00:47.446108 systemd-networkd[210]: eth0: flags change: +UP +LOWER_UP
...
Jul 20 22:00:47.781463 systemd-networkd[210]: eth0: flags change: +RUNNING

Let's manually trigger it here to make the network service start faster.

After applying this patch, the time consumption of
systemd-networkd.service was reduced from 366ms to 50ms.
