The work-flow changes unrelated to the act of moving to git but affected by the
combined (and separated) repository.  The simplest example would be the extra
options needed to configure for configuring *only* binutils (*without* gdb and
*without* sim)
in the "<path>/configure && make && make check" work-flow (alternatively the
release-tarball method, but that's more involved than I expected).  For
separated projects, e.g. cgen, you would also need a separate tree when testing
your cgen changes or changes to files in src/cpu/* instead of just checking out
cgen along with your sim or binutils tree.

So, the bullet-point being to test these changes in development work-flow works
(that the binutils configure option above works and that the cgen separation
works - patch needed there), post them to the respective lists.  For newlib, I
guess there wouldn't be much change in work-flow (needs gcc too, so also has
overcome any tree-separation anxiety with gdb and binutils).

And now that you've read this far, how about that src-release patch for sim?
I'll add a pointer in my next comment.
