As Adam implied, you can add your own, higher-numbered file with the
same options and NM will use those in preference to the Fedora-installed
one.  See 'man NetworkManager.conf' for specifics.

       If a default NetworkManager.conf is provided by your
distribution's packages, you should not modify it, since your changes
may get overwritten by
       package updates. Instead, you can add additional .conf files to
the conf.d directory. These will be read in order, with later files
       earlier ones.

Sorting of filenames is strcmp()-style, so 90-my-stuff.conf takes
precedence over 10-bad-stuff.conf.
