This function is a weak point of the Drupal. I have 1.1GiB cache_field (many types and many fields) and when I want to create one new type it turns into horror because the Drupal clears the cache_field each time I create a new type and new field - it spend a lot of time and the site goes down.
Is it possible to make it more effective like you did with read bundle fields cache in 7.22 release? Thanks.
