Yup, that's clearly wrong. For the moment I'll assume you did the
initial checkout correctly. Or at least in some wrong way that doesn't
require you to remove the whole tree and check it out again (which
definitely is what you should have done the first time, by the way). 

I'm guessing the revert part is what you really need, but go to the
/usr/src directory and try:
 # svn cleanup
 # svn revert -R *

and if you're still lost, 
 # svn status .
will tell you what is in your tree that is different from a pristine one.
