Failed to calculate current revision isn't a "fatal error". As you can
see in getver.sh it falls back to reporting an "unknown" version and
the rest of the buildroot works just fine. A exact revision isn't a
must during the entire building procedure.

The version file is for people to easily set their custom version if
they want. (e.g. if a manufacturer wants to pack their own OpenWrt
buildroot for their customers, this feature is useful)
As for hg OpenWrt never officially uses this as a version controlling
tool. I think it's there so that it's convenient when people want to
use this in their custom branch. It was added 10 years ago in svn
