As stated in RFC 4291:

   There are no broadcast addresses in IPv6, their function being
   superseded by multicast addresses.

As such, the pkttype match should not allow IPv6 rules to be added
which attempt to match broadcast packets.  The addrtype match already
rejects such attempts.

pkttype is set from the ethernet layer, so it's still possible to
forge a packet using the ethernet broadcast address on IPv6 (even if
it's ilegal), we should allow our users to drop that from ip6tables.
