Add compatiblity with bitcoin nodes in bech32 mode

See original GitHub issue

Right now we ask users to run bitcoin-core with address-type=p2sh-segwit and if they don’t they will have problems when opening new channels and generating the address that is used to return the funds to when the channel is closed (see #522)

We should support “native segwit” nodes that run with address-type=bech32.

Yes that’s what I am working on. Make sure you keep your eclair data directory and I will give you a procedure that will enable you to recover your funds. Unfortunately there is nothing in our configuration that you can change, this is a bug in our fee estimator that is fixed in #530
