[5.6] Fix clearing the cache without a cache directory #23538

As mentioned in
489c9f9, if storage_path('framework/cache') doesn't exist, php artisan cache:clear fails with the following error:

$ php artisan cache:clear -vvv

In Finder.php line 543:
  The "/vagrant/api/storage/framework/cache" directory does not exist.  

This happens regardless of the cache driver used, including array.


Practically all cache drivers except file work just fine without the framework/cache directory, so it's common to have deployments where said directory doesn't exist. Clearing the cache should still work, especially since an array or redis cache should have nothing to do with the filesystem.

I've added appropriate tests and took the liberty to clean the whole test case up a bit.

Fix running cache:clear when the framework/cache storage directory do…
…esn't exist

The only cache driver that needs this directory is the file driver, so it's reasonable to expect that customized deployments don't have it. Clearing e.g. a Redis cache should not touch the filesystem at all.

@taylorotwell you want me to do a backport to the 5.5 branch since this was AFAICT introduced in 5.5.6?
