If you use $dontcache with proxy_cache_bypass, then it's expected
behavior. At the time proxy_cache_bypass is evaluated, there's no
response yet, so the $upstream_http_* do not exist.

If you try to use $dontcache with proxy_no_cache ONLY, it'll work,
because the latter is evaluated _after_ obtaining a response.

If you use it both with proxy_cache_bypass and proxy_no_cache,
please realize that using it with proxy_cache_bypass makes no
sense, and then the fact that "map" creates the so-called
cacheable variables plays its role.

I have a patch for "map" that makes map variables "volatile".
If you absolutely need such a "map" behavior, I can send it
to you for testing, but better limit the use of $upstream_http_*
to only proxy_no_cache.
