Use nova's ping method to find out if the service is alive

Currently there is fake rpc call "pod_health_probe_method_ignore_errors"
that is passed to the service, just to find out if it is responding. Because
such method does not exist, it is needed to catch and handle the exception
that is inevitably thrown by the service.

While this is technically working correctly, the exceptions pollute the
log files and make it harder for user to see possible real errors.

This is how the error looks like:

ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server [-] Exception during message handling: oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher.UnsupportedVersion: Endpoint does not support RPC version 1.0. Attempted method: pod_health_probe_method_ignore_errors
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server Traceback (most recent call last):
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server   File "/var/lib/openstack/lib/python3.6/site-packages/oslo_messaging/rpc/server.py", line 163, in _process_incoming
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server     res = self.dispatcher.dispatch(message)
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server   File "/var/lib/openstack/lib/python3.6/site-packages/oslo_messaging/rpc/dispatcher.py", line 276, in dispatch
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server     raise UnsupportedVersion(version, method=method)
ERROR oslo_messaging.rpc.server oslo_messaging.rpc.dispatcher.UnsupportedVersion: Endpoint does not support RPC version 1.0. Attempted method: pod_health_probe_method_ignore_errors

This situation is new since https://review.openstack.org/#/c/639711/
which (correctly) increased the default level of logging. Before 639711
error messages from oslo (both real and ones that could be ignored) were not
present in nova logs at all.

Fortunatelly, nova's BaseAPI class provides 'ping' method that is can
be used for this basic purpose by all nova components.
