### Contribution description

miniterm.py is a simple terminal program that is included with pyserial. This means that it is available wherever pyterm can work. It allows raw access, does line translation and passes through special characters.

For test scripts, a terminal that does not modify the input and output streams, configured without local echo, is preferred as it ensures the test setup is introducing as few noise as possible.

### Testing procedure

With this change, `tests/shell` uses miniterm.py. Just run the tests. Use a real board, native has no real TTY.

$ cd tests/shell
$ BOARD=samr21-xpro make all
$ BOARD=samr21-xpro make flash
$ BOARD=samr21-xpro make test

### Issues/PRs references

This PR is part of  #10994 and it's purpose is to ease shell automation.
