Kitchen product_version gets passed to download_url

When needing to use a custom install.sh to support a self-signed CA in Chef's embedded SSL store, download_url may be used, but it does not support passing the product_version as a flag to the bash exec. This would be ideal to support not having to hard-code the version in the installer for kitchen use. As long as the custom installer supports a -v flag it could then support this behavior.
