Do not allow the kernel to try and be smarter than us

When accept_ra is set to 1, router advertisements are still ignored if
the interface is in forwarding mode. For such configurations, the
interface should have a static configuration and netctl already sets
accept_ra to 0. Setting it to 2 otherwise forces the kernel to accept
router advertisements regardless of the forwarding setting.
