Upgrading consul-release to consul 0.6.0

Hi cf-dev, cf-diego

The CF Infrastructure team which maintains consul-release (
https://github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator/consul-release) is considering
bumping from consul 0.5.2 to 0.6.0. There are many changes between those
consecutive releases, which you can read about here:

* 0.6.0:
https://github.com/hashicorp/consul/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#060-december-3-2015
* 0.6.1:
https://github.com/hashicorp/consul/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#061-january-6-2016
* 0.6.2:
https://github.com/hashicorp/consul/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md#062-january-13-2016

We would like to explore this bump to get the change in 0.6.0 where consul
moved to a pure Go implementation, allowing us to avoid having to set
GOMAXPROCS when starting the consul server, and then some of the security
fixes in 0.6.2 for good measure.

This change would also affect clients of the consul server in
consul-release, hopefully in mainly positive ways. If you're a consumer of
consul-release as a client, I would appreciate your feedback on this
potential bump to consul in consul-release.

Thanks,
Amit, CF Infrastructure team PM
