Installation details
Scylla version (or git commit hash): 2.0+

Since 9b21a9b cache can store partial partitions with row granularity. They're still evicted as a unit though. This is problematic for the following reasons:

  1. more is evicted than necessary, which decreases cache efficiency. In the worst case, whole cache gets evicted at once
  2. evicting large amounts of memory (large partitions) at once may impact latency badly

We should evict with finer granularity (row).
