The net.ipv6.ip_nonlocal_bind sysctl was added in kernel 4.3, so if you're running a more bleeding-edge system, you can now solve this problem directly with the sysctl, rather than working around the problem with init script hacks.
If you've arrived here, chances are you have two services where one depends upon the other but, because they're starting in the wrong order, the one with the dependency is failing to start. Suggestions about editing the symlinks are informative, in terms of illustrating how the startup sequence runs, and would work alright until someone did a "chkconfig on" ...
This seems to be the root cause of my problems: http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Windows-7-Update-verhindert-Boot-auf-Asus-Mainboards-3198586.html (Sorry, the article is in german). Interestingly i never saw the red warning which is shown in the articel for some strange reason!?

I suppose it's trying to boot from the first, /dev/sda. The thing is, first bootable partition isn't on md software raid (and it cannot be, because it's used ...
I've written a tool that automates this chore, in case it helps anyone else: https://github.com/erichs/bootnukem.
I've had a similar experience with an Areca 1883i (Firmware V1.53) in a Supermicro server running CentOS 6. The server crashed without reporting any error messages to the terminal while moving a 300GB directory between disk volumes. After a reboot using the power button the RAID controller got stuck at the "Waiting for F/W to become ready" screen. ...
The accepted answer is wrong. The behaviour you see has nothing to do with Open Firmware and everything to do with yaboot. By default a small script (the "l for Linux, c for CDROM" screen) will be booted (via the tbxi attribute) before yaboot. That scripts blocks if no monitor is connected. The solution is pretty simple, edit the OF variable boot-device to ...
