I have a chicken/egg problem.  

I want to have wlan1 as an interface.  I have created a connection to use it.  
But it doesn?t exist on reboot so I?d like to have a script in pre.d/ that will 
add the interface but NM refuses to start the connection because the interface 
does not exist.  Is there a way to get the script to execute earlier so that it 
can create the virtual interface prior to the connection check if its present?

You need to explain in more details what wlan1 interface is and how it is added.

wlan0 is instantiated automatically when the driver is loaded.  I use it as an 
AP interface.  I want to have AP/STA so I need to create wlan1 for the client 
interface.  I do this with:

iw dev wlan0 interface add wlan1 type managed

but this interface does persist across power cycle so I need to create it every 
time.  I would like to have the interface created when networkmanager tries to 
bring up the connection, but the script with the above command (in the pre.d 
directory) does not get called before networkmanager tells me there is no 
interface for the connection.
