Separate ioctl address prefix management from RA prefix management as we have no API for controlling the latter.

This fixes a long standing problem where addresses added with non /128
prefixes and non infinite address lifetimes would register a prefix route
which would expire. Subsequent calls set new lifetimes for the same address
would not affect the prefix route management, so once expired, the
prefix route would be impossible to add back as the kernel would remove it.

Based on NetBSD changes (and reusing the commit message):
sys/netinet6/in6.c 1.216
sys/netinet6/in6.c 1.217
sys/netinet6/in6.c 1.218
sys/netinet6/in6_ifattach.c 1.104
sys/netinet6/nd6_rtr.c 1.119

Also fixes a panic with INVARIANTS set and running "ndp -P"
after an IPv6 address is manually added and the same prefix
for the address is learned via router advertisment.
