OSPFv3: Prefix Suppression

OSPFv3 Suppression works almost exactly like OSPFv2 prefix suppression, but instead of omitting the transit link prefixes from Type 1 and 2 LSAs, they are omitted from Type 8 and 9 LSAs which is where the network addressing moved to in OSPFv3.

Prefix suppression can be configured per interface, or globally, and can also be configured for all address families or specific address families as needed.
