gnss: add driver for mediatek receivers

Add driver for serial-connected Mediatek-based GNSS receivers.

These devices typically boot transmitting vendor specific NMEA output
sequences. The serial port bit rate is read from the device tree

Note that the driver uses the generic GNSS serial implementation and
therefore essentially only manages power abstracted into three power
states: ACTIVE, STANDBY, and OFF.

For mediatek receivers with a main supply and no enable-gpios, this simply
means that the main supply is disabled in STANDBY and OFF (the optional
backup supply is kept enabled while the driver is bound).

Note that the timepulse-support is left unimplemented.
