The Host Cache hook was developed to support the RADIUS integration, but caching of host reservations (and negative caching) is useful for the other backends too. Can we plan to test (and fix if necessary) the cache for more general application, and document how to use it in the User Guide sections about the other backends?

[Host caching retains information about existing and non-existing host reservations learned from the external backend system in Kea, so that Kea doesn't have to search the backend for a host reservation as often, making Kea more efficient and improving performance.]
