Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear. my ifcfg-wlan0 has an IPv6 address that
is supposed to be assigned to wlan0. It isn't. The kernel complains 
kernel: [   13.872649] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

So, in my rc.local script I ifdown/ifup and it fixes it. At first I
thought it didn't, but I had a long running script that ended up before
that ifdown/ifup and so it wasn't taking. Now, the problem is only that
link is not ready junk.

Thank you,
