ipsec auto --ondemand is different from ipsec auto --route

ipsec auto --route requires connection to be added before, just like
ipsec auto --up requires connection to be added before.

ipsec auto --start does --add + --up
ipsec auto --ondemand does --add + --route

So while we have changed auto=route to auto=ondemand that doesn't mean
we want to remove command line option --route which is different.
