Knife ec backup should be able to skip validation

Validation checking is great especially when running tidy or other clean-up tasks inside of Knife ec backup. Sometimes you just need to get a backup, and do a restore regardless of the state & hygiene of the system. Validating ACLs, cookbooks, environments, roles, etc when they're broken on a source server means we can impede a customers ability to backup and restore or migrate in an emergency situation. Skipping validation would alleviate these problems.
