There are a couple of odd messages here:

First, it's complaining that wlan0 does not exist.  What does it look 
like with '/sbin/ifconfig wlan0'?  The flags should should be UP, 
BROADCAST, RUNNING, MULTICAST unless something changed, and a 
link-local address should exist.  One speculation wrt changing is that 
the ioctl interface and RUNNING flag definition could have changed, 
causing userspace-kernel mismatch.

I'm also wondering why it's reporting about other interfaces here.  Do 
you also have them configured on radvd.conf and omitted this for 
brevity or is radvd picking them up from somewhere else?
