Takashi IWAI <tiwai at suse.de> made a patch to reduce the amount of stat
() calls in the case when one is absolutely sure that all cache files
are OK and up-to-date and can be trusted. 

For details see


from comment #20 on.

There are problems if the cache files are not correct of course,
but nevertheless Takashi's patch might be a useful performance hack
if a user is able to make sure that all cache files can be trusted.
