Feature: #21638 - Introduced IP locking for IPv6

See Issue #21638


The IP-locking functionality has been extended to support IPv6 now as well. This security feature enables binding of a user session (Backend or Frontend) to an IP address or a part of it.

The available configuration options with their default values for IP-locking are:

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['FE']['lockIP'] = 2;
$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['FE']['lockIPv6'] = 2;

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['BE']['lockIP'] = 4;
$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['BE']['lockIPv6'] = 2;

The configuration can be changed via the Admin Tools -> Settings menu. The exact meaning of the numbers used for the configuration are documented there.

Code-wise a separate IpLocker class \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Authentication\IpLocker has been added, which takes care of the IP-locking for both IP versions.
