Rolling back IPv6 addresses does not work correctly #145

From :
a user rolled back an IPv6 address who made two edits in a row, but the
rollback feature only reverted one of them. The feature seems to work normally
in other situations.

fluff: Make rollback of IPv6 addresses work properly
MediaWiki has two conventions for IPv6 addresses: sanitized and
prettified. The prettified form is only used when generating a user
link, i.e. "User (talk | contribs | block)"; everywhere else, you get
the sanitized form. This meant that the textual comparison of IPv6
addresses wasn't working, and multiple edits by the same IP address were
not all rolled back.
See also MediaWiki bug 44161.
Fixes azatoth#145.
