Using bytes.Equal to compare two net.IP SCC-SA1021

Bug risk Autofix

A net.IP stores an IPv4 or IPv6 address as a slice of bytes. The length of the slice for an IPv4 address, however, can be either 4 or 16 bytes long, using different ways of representing IPv4 addresses.

In order to correctly compare two net.IPs, the net.IP.Equal method should be used, as it takes both representations into account.
