Upstream_hash 0.3

Changes in upstream_hash 0.3:

*) Change: Hashing and failover are compatible with PECL Memcache
(based on

*) Change: “hash_method” directive removed.

Note that the hashing algorithm is incompatible with old versions of
upstream_hash. I thought that the previous “crc32” algorithm was PECL
libmemcache compatible, but that turned out not to be the case. Now it
is compatible (and the new test suite proves it!).

I removed the old “simple” hash method (as well as the hash_method
because it offers no benefits or compatibility compared with the new
hash method.
