How to do that?

That's not how Subversion works. A revision number is just an identifier for a change made
at a point in time in your repository. You can't change history. All you can do is create
new history.

What you're asking for is like saying a week ago you bought a sofa, and now you've realized
you don't like the sofa and want to make it so that you never bought it. You can't do that;
you *did* buy it. All you can do now is see if you can return the sofa for a refund, or maybe
you can sell it to someone else. But nothing will change the fact that you *did* buy the sofa
and *did* have it for a week.

So what you do now is: whatever mistake was made in r111, check out a working copy of the
affected part of the repository, fix the mistake, and commit it.
