Babel: Implement IPv6 prefix compression on outgoing updates

Previously, the Babel protocol would never use prefix compression on outgoing
updates (but would parse it on incoming ones). This adds compression of IPv6
addresses of outgoing updates.

The compression only works to the extent that the FIB is walked in lexicographic
order; i.e. a prefix is only compressed if it shares bytes with the previous
prefix in the same packet.

Thanks to Toke Høiland-Jørgensen <> for the patch.
