Although we want to get rid of none as cipher, we still have not
deprecated it. In order to use it currently you need
--ncp-disable together with --cipher none to use the none cipher.

In our current situation allowing none to be specified in data-ciphers
is the lesser evil.

This commit also fixes that we use '[null-cipher]' instead 'none' when
setting remote_cipher
