Bug Description

Was trying to troubleshoot a nova-consoleauth token authentication issue and found that it didn't provide enough information to pinpoint a memcache connection issue. I think it will benefit everyone if we can slightly improve the cache_utils.py code if we can add some verbosity there, for example like stating connection failure to memcache or key looksup failure.

Here is an example of nova-consoleauth.log, it just mentioned about token checks failure but didn't mention any potential cause about it.
