Upgrade elasticsearch templates so that they are compliant with the upcoming elasticsearch 5.0. #1221
I tested Topbeat, Packetbeat and Filebeat and they all seem to work fine. The travis fail is because of the LS plugin, so not related.
However, I'm going to sit on this at least until our team meeting today, because we probably will want to keep the old templates around, so that Beats 5.0 work with ES < 5.0.
Something to be careful with is that it means that Beats 5.0 will not be compatible with Elasticsearch 6.0.
Would it be possible for Beats to load a different template based on the version of the elasticsearch cluster that it connects to?

We decided in the meeting that we want to go with the new templates only, because we only aim to work with the previous version of ES for the purpose of upgrading, in which case the templates are already loaded.
So I'm simply merging this one, thanks @jpountz.
