Ohai record creation date of Chef Infra Node

It would be useful to record the creation date of chef infra client nodes. We already record the ohai_time, when the last chef client run occurred.

    Can you expand a bit on your use case here?

    I think it would be awesome to be able to use this as switching logic.   Rolling new features, stop running certain things on old nodes, etc...

    # pseudocode
    only_if { node['create_time'] > '20180701' }
