The RIOT community cares a lot about code quality.
Therefore, before describing what your contribution is about, we would like
you to make sure that your modifications are compliant with the RIOT
coding conventions, see https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/Coding-conventions.

### Contribution description

This PR provides an alternative to start_network.sh.

start_network.sh is supposed to be use as TERMPROG and needs to be started as root.
It sets up a tap device, starts uhcpd in background, then launches ethos.

This PR's setup_network.sh drops starting ethos and starts uhcpd in foreground.

The use-case is:
- run ```sudo setup_network.sh <params>``` in one terminal, keep running
- run ```make term/test``` in another terminal, re-using the existing network

Put here the description of your contribution:
- describe which part(s) of RIOT is (are) involved
- if it's a bug fix, describe the bug that it solves and how it is solved
- you can also give more information to reviewers about how to test your changes

### Testing procedure

This is used in the soon-to-be-openened SUIT PR. I suggest using that PR as testbed.

Details steps to test your contribution:
- which test/example to compile for which board and is there a 'test' command
- how to know that it was not working/available in master
- the expected success test output

### Issues/PRs references

Examples: Fixes #1234. See also #5678. Depends on PR #9876.
