I'm not sure why submodules make anything different, but for an SVN
repository I can't see why the nightly cron job on git.qemu.org can't
just run "git svn fetch && git svn rebase" directly against OpenBIOS SVN
to update its master branch?

The problem at the moment is that the repository on git.qemu.org is
pointing to a git repository on a plain IP address (with no sensible
reverse DNS) and so far no-one has admitted ownership. This was a
problem last week when the repository stopped syncing with OpenBIOS SVN
trunk and both Stefan and myself had no idea who to contact in order to
get it fixed.
