Cache: ignore stale-if-error for 4xx and 5xx codes.
Previously the stale-if-error extension of the Cache-Control upstream header
triggered the return of a stale response for all error conditions that can be
specified in the proxy_cache_use_stale directive. The list of these errors
includes both network/timeout/format errors, as well as some HTTP codes like
503, 504, 403, 429 etc. The latter prevented a cache entry from being updated
by a response with any of these HTTP codes during the stale-if-error period.
Now stale-if-error only works for network/timeout/format errors and ignores
the upstream HTTP code. The return of a stale response for certain HTTP codes
is still possible using the proxy_cache_use_stale directive.
This change also applies to the stale-while-revalidate extension of the
Cache-Control header, which triggers stale-if-error if it is missing.
