Improve security group rule add performance and reliability

This change leverages a new NSX client method, patch_entries.
This method does not require all rules to be in the request body.
We can therefore save a DB operation, and submit a much smaller
payload. NSX responses are also much faster.

In addition, this routine ensure the DB record for a security
group rule is removed if the creation of the same rule fails at
the NSX backend.
