Search for IPv6 addresses in comments not working

We've enabled IPv6 support for a couple of high traffic sites. We are now receiving a widespread of comments with IPv6 addresses. It seems that in the admin the IPv6 addresses are clickable, but don't contain a link like a normal IPv4 address. It should be possible to search for IPv6 addresses too.

I suspect it has to do with add_query_arg in wp-admin/includes/class-wp-comments-list-table.php.php line 651 which doesn't support the structure of a IPv6 address.

The problem is not in add_query_arg, but in esc_url. See #34202

Comments: Use a full URL rather than a relative one for links which can contain IPv6 addresses to avoid an issue where the URL was being eaten by escaping functions.
