[IPsec] Issue #44: Remove IPv6 NBNS

From: Yaron Sheffer <yaronf_at_nospam>

Sec. 3.15.1: o INTERNAL_IP6_NBNS - {{ Clarif-6.6 }} NetBIOS is not defined for IPv6; therefore, INTERNAL_IP6_NBNS is also unspecified and is only retained for compatibility with RFC 4306<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4306>.

I think there is no point of keeping the 'compatibility with RFC 4306<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4306>' for feature that cannot be used. I would simply remove the whole INTERNAL_IP6_NBNS and mark it RESERVED.

Paul: Not done. This should be discussed on the mailing list. Yaron: I support Tero on this. Input from IPv6 implementors would be most useful.
