looking at getting a 6D ...does anyone know if the old 580EX flash still functions OK ??

I don't have a 6D, but would be very very surprised if the 580EX, or any ---EX speedlite, didn't function properly on it.

You won't be able to set the speedlite functions with the 6D's Flash menu, but all the 580EX's features are accessible from its own controls.

i use primarily the controls on the flash unit

1...flash exposure compensation

Yes, set directly on the speedlite (most effecient), or from the 6D's Quick Control screen.

2..High speed flash sync mode for use at any shutter speed

Yes, set directly on the speedlite (most effecient).
