Manually trigger job on board in investigating state

Registered by Le Chi Thu

We will able to put a board in a new health state named 'investigating'. In this state we can manually trigger health check job or alternative job. The job can also be run in number of iteration with pause between run.

I was thinking something entirely manual, i.e. it would be a manual
action to put a board into this state and a manual action to take it out
of it again.

We could also allow defining a health job on the device, I think we
talked about this when first adding health jobs but didn't see a need.
If Chi Thu wants to do this, it'll be easy enough to add too.


Headline: Add looping of health check jobs
Acceptance: Health check jobs are running i a loop to stress test the device.
