validate_root_noderev is only called by write_final_rev and not during
verify. svn_fs_fs__verify calls svn_fs_fs__verify_root and that does:

        /* Issue #4129: bogus predecessors. */
        /* Check 1: predecessor must be an earlier revision.
        if (pred_rev >= root->rev)
          return svn_error_createf(SVN_ERR_FS_CORRUPT, NULL,
                                   "r%ld's root node's predecessor is r%ld"
                                   " but must be earlier revision",
                                   root->rev, pred_rev);

        /* Check 2: distances must be a power of 2.
         * Note that this condition is not defined by the FSFS format but
         * merely a byproduct of the current implementation. Therefore,
         * it may help to spot corruptions for the time being but might
         * need to be removed / relaxed in later versions.
        delta = root->rev - pred_rev;
        if (delta & (delta - 1))
          return svn_error_createf(SVN_ERR_FS_CORRUPT, NULL,
                                   "r%ld's root node's predecessor is r%ld"
                                   " but the delta must be a power of 2",
                                   root->rev, pred_rev);

which doesn't catch the corruption I introduced namely that /@4 and /A_at_4
have predecessor /@2 and /A_at_2 rather than /@3 and /A_at_3.
