Would it be easier for you if we used your conversion rather than the one I did?
I used git cvsimport -a -kk -u -A with this cvs-authors list:

wichert=Wichert Akkerman <wichert at>
pavel=Pavel Machek <pavel at>
bacchus=Ralf Baechle <ralf at>
hughesj=John Hughes <john at Calva.COM>
kratochvil=Jan Kratochvil <jan.kratochvil at>
nate=Nate Sammons <nate at>
ldv=Dmitry V. Levin <ldv at>
wakkerma=Wichert Akkerman <wichert at>
ludvigm=Michal Ludvig <mludvig at>
vda_linux=Denys Vlasenko <dvlasenk at>
roland=Roland McGrath <roland at>
drepper=Ulrich Drepper <drepper at>
