The retry logic in svn_fs_fs__path_rev_absolute() seems
to be gone by now. With r1037470 and assuming proper
locking of FSFS repositories during requests, the retry
loop in open_pack_or_rev_file() will only be needed if the
repo gets packed within the same repository session.

Done in r1037586.

Done in r1037552. The real issue is not the error
leak but the potential infinite loop if there is some
unexpected error after the first iteration.
