Description

The various wrappers of the storage API all use the same int type for their id's. This means the compiler can't know if we use the wrong id in the wrong wrapper, which has lead to at least one bug (#4348/#4424).

To avoid this in the future we should change the id type to wrapper specific struct that embeds the int. This way the compiler can enforce this for us.

There are 4 such wrappers: flow, ippair, host and device.

The flow has been done in: https://github.com/OISF/suricata/commit/bc667a4a939c887bc298bbb865eda4338f8cea2f
