I'm reopening this and assigning it to benjamin as the 2.7 release manager.  This change is valuable to apply to 2.7.x as well.  It is very simple and is a clear performance improvement for realistic workloads.  No API change.

When you profile Python 2.7 applications today, the _PyType_Lookup function shows up in the ~3% of all CPU cycles range.  This reduces that for a small memory tradeoff.

We're raising our cache exponent to be even larger than the 12 in this patch at work as we've got some huge applications.  Regardless, 12 is a much better default than the existing 9.
