FifoEvictionPolicy class Null safety

Using this algorithm the cache behaves in the same way as a FIFO queue. The cache evicts the sampled entries in the order they were added, without any regard to how often or how many times they were accessed before. This algorithm uses CacheStat.creationTime to keep track of when a entry was created.

select(Iterable<CacheStat?> entries, CacheStat justAdded) CacheStat?
Finds the best eviction candidate based on the sampled entries. What distinguishes this approach from the classic data structures approach is that an CacheStat contains metadata (e.g. usage statistics) which can be used for making policy decisions, while generic data structures do not. It is expected that implementations will take advantage of that metadata. [...]
