That looked really bad. It should have given you a message similar to
the usual message of "svn up" in a working tree.
The problem was that you removed the trailing "coreboot-v3" part from
the URL and this caused svn to completely hose your tree.

I'd say the repo is now really broken.
In the future, I'll add an explicit "if you think you see anything that
looks like an error message, STOP IMMEDIATELY" to any mails with
subversion commands.
