Yes, let's do this now.

I will send a patch to point .gitmodules at GitLab. In the process of
doing this I noticed sgabios.git is not yet mirrored on GitLab. After I
create that repo (and any other missing repos) I will send a qemu.git
patch series that references the GitLab repos instead of qemu.org repos.

We can perform the mirroring direction switch that Paolo described above
