page_cache: fix memory leak
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.
