I think we need a repository format bump from 1.8 to 1.9, and disable
revprop caching in 1.8 and 1.9 for the current format. This should prevent
unexpected errors when upgrading from 1.8.x (any version) to 1.9.

Going forward, we should only allow revprop caching in a new repository
format with a fixed implementation (given a fixed implementation is possible).
