Relays already check that their IPv4 ORPorts are working.

Doing reachability checks for relay IPv6 ORPorts is a bit more
complicated, because we have to teach relays to extend over IPv6 first.

Here's the master ticket:

And if relays use authority IPv6 ORPorts to upload descriptors, they
will get connectivity checks for free:
