Subject: [PATCH net-next] ipv6: fix "'ioam6_if_id_max' defined but not used" warn

When compiling without CONFIG_SYSCTL, this warning appears:

  net/ipv6/addrconf.c:99:12: error: 'ioam6_if_id_max' defined but not used [-Werror=unused-variable]
     99 | static u32 ioam6_if_id_max = U16_MAX;
        |            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

Simply moving the declaration of this variable under ...

  #ifdef CONFIG_SYSCTL

... with other similar variables fixes the issue.

Fixes: 9ee11f0fff20 ("ipv6: ioam: Data plane support for Pre-allocated Trace")
Signed-off-by: Matthieu Baerts <matthieu.baerts@...sares.net>

Notes:
    Please note that this 'ioam6_if_id_max' variable could certainly be
    declared as 'const' like some others used as limits for sysctl knobs.
    But here, this patch focuses on fixing the warning reported by GCC.
