Public bug reported:

Because DHCPv6 only does addresses, and not routes, configure_networking
needs to wait for the kernel to process a router-advertisement before
returning claiming an IPv6 config (since all it will have is a /128 and
no routes, making for a pretty useless network stack.)  See Bug #1609898
for context.

(The syntax for ip= should probably also be extended to allow SLAAC
configuration.  If the user said "dhcp", then we should insist on
getting our answer from DHCP.)

On the bright side, iscsi retries, so after 1 or more failures to
connect, the router-advertisement comes in and the connect succeeds.
