How about "all" instead of "full" ("all" being the opposite of "none")?
A cache being "full", although not making sense in this context, does
have another meaning.

I think that "lookupcache" is a little more accurate, and perhaps worth
the verbosity. "dircache" could be misinterpreted to imply that
directory listings are being cached -- which, incidentally, I'm start to
receive complaints is a problem for us, too...
Converstation on this seems to have died down, and I'm ready to revisit
the patch. I'm inclined to go with:
If you have a strong (enough) opinion otherwise, please speak up now and
save me the trouble of an extra pass at the patch...
