Thanks for the summary. This is indeed a mess in the standard so let's not
overcomplicate it. I agree with just taking the revision from 'main LVD'
and storing it in the superblock like you do in this patch. I'd just
slightly change your code so that extracting a revision from 'struct regid'
is a separate function and not "hidden" inside
udf_verify_domain_identifier(). There's no strong reason for combining
these two.

WRT parsing of minUDFReadRev and friends, I'd handle them similarly to
numDirs and numFiles. I'd initialize them to the version we've got from
LVD, then possibly override them in udf_load_logicalvolint(), and finally
possibly override them in udf_load_vat().
