[functional][y] wicked changed behavior to reload instead of restart on latest version
After discussing with developers ( wicked and YaST ) https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1165923 it appears that it actually expected behavior to reload wicked instead of restart . Test behavior should be aligned accordingly
As of now we check logs to validate the behavior, so verify_network_configuration method to detect reload.
Log level for wicked is increased, so it's only matter of finding it.
- Network devices reload is assured for the case when we rename device
- Behavior for SLE 15 SP1 and older is not affected

From #wicked channel in RC :
@asmorodskyi: Marius Tomaschewski regarding yesterday bug , looks like this reload instead of restart behavior was introduced only recently , right ? is it something new introduced only in SLE 15 SP2 ? Latest updates in SLE 15 SP1 still keep doing restart https://openqa.suse.de/tests/4005300#step/yast2_lan_restart/106 @teclator: Yep, it was introduced recently in YaST (SLE-15-SP2) and mainly because we have rewritten yast-network. We used to set a force_restart flag that was not set after the rewrite, and that is why the behavior changed.
