Change subject: rewire build_encr_info() to return errors
......................................................................

rewire build_encr_info() to return errors

In build_encr_info(), validate the algorithm and key presence and return
negative if errors are encountered.

At all callers, handle the error case.

An upcoming patch will add handling of Kc128 for A5/4 encryption and
also wants to return error codes. This is a preparation for that patch:
I7c458c8a7350f34ff79531b3c891e1b367614469

Notice that osmo-bsc does send the key along even if A5/0 is chosen,
this patch keeps that behavior unchanged.
