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 automatic persistence mecanism of the LoRaMAC session keys and devaddr. This allows to put a device a standby (no ram retention) when using OTAA activation and to continue sending data after wakep without having to join the network again.

Only devaddr, nwkskey, appskey and joined status are saved. But maybe we can extend to more information (DR, ADR, etc) ?

To avoid conflicts, note that this PR is based on #11541 which also provides a useful rework

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

- Build and flash `tests/pkg_semtech-loramac` application, join a network using OTAA procedure, send a message:
> loramac set deveui <deveui>
> loramac set appeui <appeui>
> loramac set appkey <appkey>
> loramac set dr 5
> loramac join otaa
Join procedure succeeded!
> loramac tx test
Message sent with success
- Save the current status of the MAC and reboot:
> loramac save
> reboot
- Try to send another message without joining again:
> loramac tx anothertest
Message sent with success

All steps should work. Other things that can also be tested: `uncnf`, receive a downlink. Also test that ABP activation still works.

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
