IPv6 Peer testing gets stuck when running IPv6-only

This bug is in the context of IPv6 peer testing recently added in >=0.9.26-3.

When running in IPv6-only mode, peer testing becomes stuck attempting to perform an IPv4 peer test. The IPv4 peer test will abort when pickTestPeer fails to find an IPv4 peer due to lack of any incoming IPv4 connections, and will continue to attempt IPv4 testing on successive runs of peer testing since there's never been a successful IPv4 test.

The following one-line patch fixed the problem for me.

Subject: [PATCH] i2p/router: Check for IPV6_ONLY before checking IPv4

I2P allows an IPv6-only mode.

IPv6 peer testing has been added recently; however, when running
in IPv6-only, periodic peer testing will get stuck trying to test
for IPv4 reachability.

Add a test to skip IPv4 periodic peer testing if the router is
configured as IPV6_ONLY.

There's probably more IPv6-only bugs floating around, thanks for testing
