Replace the periodic page reclaiming code with a LRU caching algorithm.
This patch implements a page cache that is invalidated in a LRU fashion. Pages are added to the cache as soon as they become visible. When the cache is full and a new page that isn't in the cache becomes visible, the least recently viewed page in the cache is evicted from memory and the new one takes it's place. The cache size is configurable using the page-cache-size configuration variable, with a default value of 15 pages. Very large values for the cache size are not recommended, though, as it will stress the system memory out. The old periodic page reclaiming code is no longer necessary with this patch, so I removed it. Special thanks to Ignas Anikevičius, and Sebastian Ramacher for the inspirations.
