And then do what, create it? If at all possible, we shouldn't create the
mergeinfo database until we actually need to use it - for a parallel,
see fs_fs.c:read_format(), where we deliberately don't create the FS
format file if it doesn't exist.

Out of interest, what happens if two threads try to create the mergeinfo
database at the same time?
