[riot-users] Periodic router advertisements for 6lowpan ND

Hi Joakim,

admittedly, this isn't possible at the moment, since the routine taking
care of the periodic RAs currently is only checking if the interface is a
6Lo interface. That is currently only dependent on the device type of the
underlying interface type. PR 10499 helps with that, as it adds distinction
between the interface being a 6Lo interface (device-type specific) and a
6Lo-ND interface (how it behaves in neighbor discovery). By deactivating
the 6Lo-ND there would be periodical RAs on that interface. But I think
that is not what you want, so probably a specific netif flag [3] for
configuring the periodic RAs and a change of that check are required for
that. Currently, there is only the option to configure if an interface is
sending RAs at all or not.

Best regards,
