In later patches (not submitted yet), these two will be also called by
other notification handlers.

It's a relic of earlier version before splitting the complex message
types when the table was rather sparse. I'll change it to a lookup table
to make it consistent with the rest of the code.

That's similar to ethnl_std_parse(), the idea is that this is the
standard handler for notifications which are triggered without
additional data and the message is the same as reply to corresponding
"GET" request (which is generated by the standard ethnl_get_doit()
handler). Notifications for actions and notifications for SET commands
which cannot be generated this standard way will have to use their own
(nonstandard) handler.
