Fix: IPv6 reverse DNS zone handling

while playing around with samba4 bind9_dlz and IPv6,
if ran into the following problem:
Using a Windows 7 MMC it is possible to add a reverse
IPv6 zone, however upon first refresh it gets sorted into the
forward zone list, which prevents a user from adding PTR
Looking at the samba4 code, it looks like reverse zone handling
is only done for IPv4 zones (ending in "in-addr.arpa").
Handling of IPv6 zones (ending in "ip6.arpa") is missing.
The attached patch fixes that behavior .
IPv6 reverse zones work, PTR records can be added (only tested
from MMC, not yet with "samba-tool dns"), and nslookup/dig
return valid entries.
