Change subject: core/msgb.h: introduce msgb_l4len() helper

core/msgb.h: introduce msgb_l4len() helper

There is already a group of similar functions for L1, L2 and L3,
but L4 was missing. The L4 is usually used for parsing of complex
L3 messages, such as SS/USSD and SMS.

This change introduces a similar halper for L4.
