make sure shims and versions sub-directory is owned by rbenv user.

it is created by rbenv via a startup script so is owned by root
we create some sub-folders owned by rbenv before the init script runs

@deepak isn't it better to just run /etc/profile.d/ and let rbenv init do it's job?

bash "initialize_rbenv" do
  user "rbenv"
  group "rbenv"

  code <<-EOH
    source /etc/profile.d/

  action :nothing

@timurvafin user ownership and permissions seemed like a basic assumption.

the effect is as if the rbenv user has "installed" rbenv

if we run "rbenv init" what we are saying is any user can install rbenv but we will run init as rbenv user
not even sure if that will work without permission problems
