Support s3 cookbooks via instance profile in addition to via access keys

Currently if chef-infra is using external cookbooks in s3, it is required to set access and secret key. We should support using instance profiles to get permissions to the s3 bucket and files.

    This is functionality we'd really like to be able to implement in the future. We have some discovery work going on right now to see what's involved in dynamic credentials, which is the foundation necessary for fetching credentials from profiles.
