I have a patch to fix this issue, the code was lost the processing for SVN_PROP_REVISION_LOG.

Let's take these issues one at a time.  The expected behaviour is:

1. 'svnadmin dump' should include all properties.

2. 'svnadmin load' should succeed even when svn:log is missing.

Now, to your patch.  First of all, the patch shouldn't affect svnadmin's
behaviour in any way, because svnadmin doesn't enter the codepath your
changed: that codepath is only used when authz is in effect, and
svnadmin never does authz.  (That's how #1 is implemented.)  Did you
perchance run 'svnrdump dump' instead?  That'd explain why your patch
had an effect.

Next, omitting svn:log in the svn_repos_revision_partial_access case is
not a bug; it's deliberately this way.

If you can reproduce a case in which either #1 or #2 don't hold, that
would be a bug.  However, given that your patch had an effect, you are
probably using some tool other than svnadmin.  So, please quote the
command lines you entered and the error messages they generated.
