### Contribution description

This PR adds a package for easy usage of google protocol buffers.
It adds some logic to automatically generate *.c files from *.proto files within a module's source folder.

In order to do so, a prerequisite commit adds generic support for generated sources.

### Testing procedure

See ```tests/pkg_nanopb/README.md``` for usage info. Specifically, in order to test this, you'll need to install the official protobuf compiler, it's python bindings and the nanopb generator plugin.

As that generator is not (yet) part of the build container, the test cannot be compiled on the CI.

This is an alternative to #11157. Differences:

- includes generic way to generate sources using tools like nanopb.
- uses official test code
- simpler package source compilation through using custom (one-line) Makefile instead of calling upstream cmake
