packet tlp-rdw depends on NetworkManager, tlp.service wants NetworkManager.

The consequence is that with installed tlp-rdw and enabled tlp.service (from package tlp), Networkmanager is started by tlp, which breaks netctl(-auto) as Networkmanager and netctl do not seem work in parallel.

Additional info:
community/tlp 0.7-2
community/tlp-rdw 0.7-2

Steps to reproduce:
Install and use netctl-auto, install and enable tlp, install tlp-rdw.

Masking NetworkManager.service fixes the problem; seems not to break anything regarding tlp

Maybe moving Networkmanager from dependency to optional dependency for tlp-rdw is a possible fix.
As I'm not sure why Networkmanager is a depentency in the first place, there might be reasons for this not being a valid fix, though.
This task depends upon
