Yes, makes sense; we have been doing exactly this for the last few 
months.  We created our own integration repo (to host our own build 
integration scripts) and cloned the llvm and clang repos from (I assume) 
https://github.com/llvm-mirror as sub-modules within it.  We're just 
using the native git command line to manage things and, so far, so good.

We're still working on getting a full continuous integration process in 
place (right now we manually pull periodically), but expect to have that 
soon.  The CI process is just to inform us of conflicts and allow us to 
resolve them proactively; we don't release product based on trunk.
