[riot-notifications] [RIOT] ng_net: add IID option and simplify upper layers accordingly (#3159)

This puts the IPv6 IID generation from the link-layer address where it belongs: into the link-layer.


* introducing a new option for this `NETCONF_OPT_IPV6_IID`
* introducing a function `ng_xxx_get_iid()` per supported link layer (`ng_ieee802154` and `ng_ethernet`).
* adapting the current `ng_` drivers to support the `NETCONF_OPT_IPV6_IID` option via their respective link layer's `ng_xxx_get_iid()`
* adapting `ng_ipv6_netif` to use `NETCONF_OPT_IPV6_IID` for IPv6 addresse initialization
* adapting `ng_sixlowpan_iphc` to use `NETCONF_OPT_IPV6_IID` for source address (de)compression and `ng_ieee802154_get_iid()` for destination address (de)compression
