### Contribution description
This PR improves Renode integration within RIOT-OS. It's a reboot of #8153, but improved. At the same time, @Citrullin was working on #15427, but I had some additional idea's as well.

* Now that https://github.com/renode/renode/issues/144 is fixed, its easier to export paths from RIOT-OS. I therefore moved the board scripts to `board/<name>/dist/renode` to contain Renode-related files. Note that some boards are supported by Renode [out-of-the-box](https://github.com/renode/renode/tree/master/platforms), but they might not be fully compatible. For instance, the `stm32f4discovery` uses UART2 instead of UART4 in Renode's version.
* With the intention of #15427 I also added a warning to note that emulation experience depends on many factors, to manage expectations.
* Prepared for version check, which should work if Renode provides a version command. I opened a feature request for that here: https://github.com/renode/renode/issues/154. I also expect that the next release will be V1.12, albeit master is still pointing to V1.11.
* Additional board support. EFM32 CPUs have a UART bug (in Renode) that prevents them from printing more than one line, but they do at least print something.

### Testing procedure
* Compile the latest version of Renode. This was quite easy on macOS, with [Mono](https://www.mono-project.com/) installed.
* Run `make emulate` in a (simple) application. For instance: `BOARD=stm32f4discovery make -C examples/default emulate`
