Cached performance optimization

Status: done, but requires further work. Details are here: CachedPerformance. Patch with optimization changes and several minor changes is here: Patch. This latest cached version can be used to handle IANA services list.

TODO list

  1. Finish the auto-cache-update feature for precached entries. Play with cached socket IO architecture for its further optimization.
  2. Improve nss_ldap to properly support rfc2307bis and to be fully equal in abilities with PADL's nss_ldap.
  3. Import or implement pam_ldap.
