Unsolicited router advertisements

If I am running bird6 sending IPv6 router advertisements, is there a way
I can persuade bird (without shutting it down and restarting it) to
send unsolicited router advertisements, as per RFC2461 s6.2.4?

Can I do this through a birdc complete restart of the ra protocol or
similar? Or will that maintain timers?
