Tiny patch to Squid 1.1.22 - re: RETRY_PATCH

This is something that I put in the documentation, but neglected to
enforce in the code. If the retry patch is enabled, as it is by
default in the 1.1.22 distribution, the ipcache size should be
increased, since the average high-water mark of the ipcache will tend
to be higher. This is because ipcache entries are not ejected from
the cache until their timeout expires, in order to retain data about
the responsiveness of each address in the entry.

If you already run 1.1.22, don't bother applying this patch -- just
change your squid.conf file to set the ipcache_size parameter to 2048.
