Make use of the already available brief flag and print the basic details of
the IPv4 or IPv6 neighbour cache in a tabular format for better readability
when the brief output is expected.

$ ip -br neigh
bridge0          172.16.12.100                           b0:fc:36:2f:07:43
bridge0          172.16.12.174                           8c:16:45:2f:bc:1c
bridge0          172.16.12.250                           04:d9:f5:c1:0c:74
bridge0          fe80::267b:9f70:745e:d54d               b0:fc:36:2f:07:43
bridge0          fd16:a115:6a62:0:8744:efa1:9933:2c4c    8c:16:45:2f:bc:1c
bridge0          fe80::6d9:f5ff:fec1:c74                 04:d9:f5:c1:0c:74

And add "ip neigh show" to the list of ip sub commands mentioned in the man
page that support the brief output in tabular format.
