> The PermissionEntryProviderImpl (one instance per session) is responsible for serving
the permission entries. It can be backed by 2 different types of caches:
> * the {{PathEntryMapCache}} which is simply a map that eagerly loads all existing permissions
for a session (aka. set of principals). Used only if there are less than 250 total entries
per session (all principals combined).
> * The {{DefaultPermissionCache}} backed by the {{PermissionEntryCache}}. this is the
fallback for the cases where the above is too expensive to use.
> In some cases, even if the number of permission entries per principal is not too large,
a session that accumulates large numbers of group principals (I've seen over 700 in one internal
case), will always fallback to use the {{PermissionEntryCache}}.
> The {{PermissionEntryCache}} is a cache that is using the principal as a key and the
permission entries as values. It is aggregating 2 different types of data:
> * Existing policies: maps principals to paths with (their) existing policies (regular
cache stuff)
> * but it also retains paths without any relevant policies for the current session, as
empty sets [0]. being a cache keyed on the 'principal', this placeholder for empty policies
will be set for each principal.
> I believe this second part can be responsible for a large memory footprint, which can
also be amplified by the very large number of principals in the session.
> I would like to propose separating the 2 sets contained in the cache, putting the non-relevant
paths in a dedicated map with a fixed size.
