Description of problem:
HAProxy to allow for http://cbonte.github.io/haproxy-dconv/configuration-1.4.html#option httpchk to provide auth credentials to the endpoint its checking.
How reproducible: Very
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Complete https://www.openshift.com/kb/kb-e1044-how-to-redirect-traffic-to-https for a scaled application.
HA-Proxy will not be able to access the / endpoint because it needs to authenticate.
HAProxy should be able to be configured so that it could authentication with the / resource.
Another way to resolve this issue is by having https://issues.jboss.org/browse/JBPAPP-11176 allow you to exclude endpoints.
For v3 this should apply to liveness and readiness checks.

FYI also generating a basic auth header is possible. I'm using it in one deployment.
