openpgp: allow NewEntity to specify the default cipher

The openpgp package promotes bad defaults by not setting the
preferred cipher and hash of new entities created by
`openpgp.NewEntity`.

The preferred hash can be set by passing a `packet.Config`
with a `DefaultHash` set, but the same cannot be done for
the preferred cipher.

This change copies the DefaultCipher into the self-signature, similar to
DefaultHash.
