Bug Description

I am running validations using a static inventory generated by tripleo-ansible-inventory, all the validations are failling due to the cacert variable in this inventory which is not respecting the key=value format.

Moving this to pike-rc1 as we need tripleo-ansible-inventory in minor updates and this empty cacert breaks everything

    Do not output empty variables in inventory

    Currently tripleo-ansible-inventory --static can create an invalid
    inventory file:
    The offending line appears to be:
    ^ here

    Attempted to read "/home/stack/validations_static_inventory" as ini file: /home/stack/validations_static_inventory:11: Expected key=value, got: cacert

    The broken snippet can be:
    ansible_connection = local
    undercloud_swift_url =

    We need to make sure that keys that have a 'None' dictionary do not
    break the inventory file.
