Personally I would probably commit all of the changes without regards
to the date and then edit the ,v files to update the relevant dates.
That seems reasonable since you say you are already planning on
editing those files.

Alternatively I would use libfaketime[1] to set the time and do local
commits.  You could script it to stat the file and use that timestamp
as the current time.
