### Contribution description

This adds the ability to have multiple message busses per network interface.
A message bus for nib events is implemented.

Currently it only contains a `GNRC_IPV6_NIB_EVENT_REG_SUCCESS` which informs subscribers that a address registration was successful.

### Testing procedure

I modified the `start` function of #13826 to block until a valid prefix is available:

static int _start_cmd(int argc, char **argv)
    (void) argc;
    (void) argv;

    static bool init_called;

    if (init_called) {
        /* set all interfaces to IDLE */
    } else {
        /* we must only call init once */
        init_called = true;

    msg_t m;
    msg_bus_entry_t sub;
    msg_bus_t *bus = gnrc_netif_get_bus(gnrc_netif_iter(NULL), GNRC_NETIF_BUS_NIB);
    msg_bus_attach(bus, &sub);

    msg_bus_subscribe(&sub, GNRC_IPV6_NIB_EVENT_REG_SUCCESS);


    puts("Interfaces should new be online.");

    msg_bus_detach(bus, &sub);

    return 0;
