Here's a patch to add IPv6 address sniffing to targets-sniffer. The
major difference is changing the BPF from "ip" to "ip or ip6". I had
to add a couple checks for NDP multicast addresses to
check_if_valid, and I may have missed some other invalid IPv6

I also fixed an issue (not quite a bug) where targets would be added
with newtargets even if they were not of the current address_family.
This resulted in lots of lines like this:
Failed to resolve given IPv6 hostname/IP:  Note that
you can't use '/mask' or '[1-4,7,100-]' style ranges for IPv6.

Maybe it should additionally change the BPF filter to only "ip" or only
"ip6" depending on the address family?
