Implement LoadBalancerProbe


With new implementation done on 6.4 version, to correctly notify the Azure Load Balancer when an instance is ready to serve the contents, the webrole needs to implement a custom LoadBalancerProbe (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj151530.aspx). This is causing to show 404 errors during some seconds on first deployment while the instance is connecting to the shared drive, showing this error in the wizard (if you try to open the URL after a few seconds you will check that the site is up and running).

Implementing a LoadBalancerProbe is not needed, just implemeting the RoleEnvironment.StatusCheck is sufficient.
