I didn't follow all the preparation of the switch to git, sorry, but
have you considered using an approach "external" to git to keep in sync
multiple repositories? Something like repo[1] used in Android, or mr[2]
or gitslave[3].

mr is the simplest one IMHO.

They may be less portable and require yet another tool, but they are
designed to sync _independent_ repositories, which submodules make a
pain to deal with.
