implement maintenance window support

Some organizations can only run Chef or InSpec during specific times either due to peak loads or risk to their business.

Effortless Infra and Effortless InSpec can add logic to detect if a maintenance window is set, and skip the associated chef-infra client or Chef InSpec runs.

Something like

Maintenance window 00:00-05:00

If maintenance window run

Else skip
