Agreed, the llvm-project repository can completely take on the role of the
SQL database in Renato's proposal.

Chromium created a "git-number" extension that assigns sequential ids to
commits in the obvious way, and that provided some continuity with the
"git-svn-id:" footers in commit messages. I'm not sure their extension is
particularly reusable, though:

I think for LLVM, whatever process updates the umbrella repo should add the
sequential IDs to the commit message, and that will help provide continuity
across the git/svn bridge.
