bankd: Don't use as default IP address for the server

If remsim-bankd connects via or any other loopback-routed
IP address to the remsim-server, then the getpername() of remsim-server
for the bankd will also render, and subsequently that IP
address will be provided to remsim-client as address to connect to.

In almost all setups, remsim-client will be running on a remote node and
hence not able to reach remsim-bankd at

Let's turn the server-IP into a mandatory command line argument of
remsim-bankd and not use a problematic default value.

a [usually remote] remsim-client attempts to reach the bankd via loopback, which doesn't work.
