From: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@hammerspace.com>

When reading a very large directory, we want to try to keep the page
cache up to date if doing so is inexpensive. Right now, we will try to
refill the page cache if it is non-empty, irrespective of whether or not
doing so is going to take a long time.

Replace that algorithm with something that looks at how many times we've
refilled the page cache without seeing a cache hit.
