Apparently xfs_repair running on a v5 filesystem doesn't check the
compat, rocompat, or incompat feature flags for bits that it doesn't
know about, which means that old xfs_repairs can wreak havoc.  So,
strengthen the checks to prevent repair from "repairing" anything it
doesn't understand.

v2: Move the complaint code after the version number check, and print
the actual feature bits that we don't recognize.

v3: Fix some copy-pasta errors, and simpify the warning messages.
