Just to be clear, since it sounds like you haven't been following the llvm-dev discussion -- the alternative to git-repo is *not* submodules. I agree that submodules are awful. The alternative is a monolithic repository (monorepo) that contains, as a single git repository, the full history of all llvm subprojects. Similar to https://github.com/llvm-project/llvm-project.
