[riot-notifications] [RIOT-OS/RIOT] sys/shell: Exit the shell on ctrl-D or ctrl-C. (#10788)

### Contribution description

Right now the only way to exit the shell is if stdin is closed. This works on native, but on an embedded platform stdin is the uart and thus is never closed.

This patch causes the shell loop to exit on:

* ETX (ASCII 0x03 / ctrl-C) "End-of-Text".
* EOT (ASCII 0x04 / ctrl-D) "End-of-Transmission".

### Testing procedure

To be able to test this I had to do a couple of modifications to `tests/shell`.

- Fix the use of python dictionaries: Python dictionaries are not guaranteed to be ordered until version
3.7. In 3.6 they are ordered too, but that is an implementation detail. riotdocker seems to be using 3.5. The commands in this test were stored in a dict.

- Use miniterm instead of pyterm: pyterm messes up control characters, so the test was changed to use
miniterm.py instead.

Run the test in `tests/shell` with `native` _and_ with a board.

### Related PRs

#10105 introduced the possibility of exiting the shell, but there was really no way to do it in a board.
