core: handle device removal when properties are unreadable
By the time we get the udev device removal notification we may not be able to read properties, since the device has already been removed from sysfs. That means we can't get the ifindex, so we need to fall back to the interface name. But we always want to prefer the ifindex since that will never change as long as the device is connected, unlike the interface name.
