Spotlight resource does not verify metadata server is running #45

Spotlight resource assumes that the metadata server is running and hasn't been disabled with launchctl unload.

This requires a workaround of adding a launchd resource to start it and a small delay block to allow for it to finish spinning up before the spotlight resource is called:

launchd 'metadata server' do 
  path '/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/' 
  action :enable 
ruby_block 'wait for metadata server spin-up' do 
  block { sleep 2 } 

spotlight '/'

Fix for Issue #45: Spotlight resource does not verify metadata server…
… is running (#126)

* minor refactor

* split out the mdutil -s command for testability

* add additional functions that check that the server is disabled and a toggle function

* move MetadataUtil object outside the execute block so that it can be used by multiple execute blocks such as the new one used to enable the server

* modify the integration test to turn off the server as its first action

* update spec tests for the new possible state

* Responding to code review comments

- Removed the additional state in mdutil_possible_state
- Shift the mdutil output parsing to server_disabled
- Make mdutil_output a attr_reader so that we can now remove
  the volume parameter

* remove the excess parameter

* remove un-needed spec test for the additional possible state
