Remove ipfilter IPv6 rc rules specification

Authored by cy on Feb 12 2021, 3:20 PM.



As of ipfilter 5.1.2 the IPv4 and IPv6 rules tables have been merged.
The ipf(8) -6 option has been a NOP since then. Currently the additional
ipf -6 load statement in rc.d/ipfilter simply added the second ipfilter
rules file to the table already populated by the previous ipf command.
Plenty of time has passed since ipfilter 5.1.2 was imported. It is time to
remove the option from rc.conf and the rc script.

The above is the commit message in one of my local branches.

An UPDATING entry should probably also be crafted.

Test Plan

Running here for a long time.
