My vote is for "4".

Yeah, I was originally against this (fearing a suggestion of
'svn_fs_go_make_the_locking_tables()'). But the more I think about
this, the more I realize that we shouldn't be tying FS functionality
to repos version numbers. A Subversion filesystem is a wholly
independent on-disk structure that doesn't need a repository wrapper
at all.

So I think we need svn_repos_upgrade(), which calls another new
svn_fs_upgrade(). svn_fs_upgrade() would bump the FS version number,
and create the locking tables (and enable locking functionality by
virtue of bumping the FS version number).
