deprecate prefix on rtadvd shutdown

When rtadvd is shutdown the router lifetime and lifetimes for DNS options are
set to zero in order to deprecate that information.

The same should be done for prefix information as shown in the attached patch.

With the patched version other hosts stop immediately the use of old prefixes
when rtadvd is restarted with new prefix information. Othwerwise we have to
wait for prefix expiry, which meanwhile may lead to non-working connection
