Resolve "Migrate MySQL DB V6 address columns to binary"

Contributes to #2909 (closed)

For MySQL lease and host back ends:

Change lease6.address and ipv6_reservations.address columns from varchar(39) to binary(16) Remove lease6.binaddr column and logic

This change makes Kea require inet6_aton() and inet6_ntoa() SQL functions. These do not exist prior to MySQL 5.7 and earlier versions of Mariadb (such as 5.5.68, used by Centos 7). Kea/MySQL will no longer be supported on such platforms.
