Test Kitchen should always use Chef Infra Client version specified, regardless of if it is installed already and a different version

Currently Test Kitchen uses whatever version of Chef Infra Client is installed on the image, even if a newer client version is specified in the kitchen.yml (only if the install strategy is set to always will it update). It should just update the client based on whatever version is defined in the kitchen.yml without the requirement to set the strategy to always – like the logic in the chef_client_updater cookbook.
