I guess what actually happens (having switched from ndiswrapper
to bcm43xx drivers) is that in the linux wifi stack AP
association happens only after the link is brought up (such as ip
link set up <device>), which can take 2 seconds or so before
association is finished.
And the IPv6 stack probably sends these RouterSollicitations
immidiately after the link is brought up, and not after the
driver notifies the link is actually up.
With ndiswrapper the association takes places after the driver
To bring down the wait time you can also decrease the RA
