I've now re-written the algorithm that converts the directory entries to
cache entries, and it's now no longer destructive. For now the
directory entries are not needed in core, so I'll free them when done
with reading the index, but it's possible to keep it.

I'm freeing them for now, as they are not used anywhere, but in the
future we might want to keep them for some optimizations.
