When apc isn't available in php, a user can't disable the apc module using admin/modules because of several fatal errors.
The patch fixes this by providing dummy functions and checking for the APCIterator class.
I'm not really happy with doing an additional check but I think it will safe a alot of issues in the issue queue ;) Committed.
