XBZRLE encoded migration introduced a MRU page cache
meachnism. Unfortunately, cached items where never freed in
case of a collision in the page cache on cache_insert().

This lead to out of memory conditions during XBZRLE migration
if the page cache was small and there where a lot of collisions
in the cache.
