Enable Cookstyle checks for Policyfiles

Today, Cookstyle only checks cookbooks and inspec.

Cookstyle should also be able to check both policyfiles and policyfile repos.

ex: check for deprecated cookbooks, check for a cookbook line for each cookbook in a run-list, check that a policyfile has at least one default_source.

for reference see these changes for cookbook depends: https://github.com/chef/cookstyle/issues/860
