If you are using NetworkManager, then it's expected that you'd let
NetworkManager control the interface and not use the command-line to do
so.  Using the command-line and NetworkManager at the same time will
make each step on the others toes.  NetworkManager does have the
facility to ignore specific devices you tell it to ignore, but that
mechanism is distro-dependent.
