Description: After upgrade to 0.7-1 netctl can't establish a wifi connection

Additional info: I use netctl to establish network connections; NetworkManager is installed as a dependency. Since version 0.7-1 tlp starts the NetworkManager.service and netctl fails to start. In result I lost the network connection. The only solution so far is to mask NetworkManager or to disable netctl and enable NetworkManager. That makes netctl unusable if tlp is installed. For other reasons I prefer to keep netctl instead of NetworkManager.

* package version(s): 0.7-1

Steps to reproduce: Upgrade to 0.7-1 triggers the problem, de-installation (or probably a downgrade) solved it.
This task depends upon

NetworkManager is not a dependecy of tlp, it is a dep of tlp-rdw which is completely optional and is the only part that needs NetworkManager to operate. The tlp unit only "Wants" NetworkManager, meaning it will still start and work fine even if NetworkManager is not available.
