On second thought, no my idea was stupid. We only need to optimize
lstat for certain cases and naming cached_lstat is much clearer. I
suspect read-cache.c and maybe dir.c and unpack-trees.c are the only
places that need cached_lstat. Other places should not issue many
lstats and we don't need to touch them.
