first rename current master to something else:
 * git branch -m master notwork

second check your remote branches (local copies of remote branches):
 * git branch -r

you should see 'trunk' there, so you can make local branch 'master'
from this remote branch
 * git checkout -b master trunk

now you can use:
 * git svn fetch - fetch data from svn to local copies of remote
branches inside .git directory
 * git svn rebase - merge fetched changes to your current branch
 * git commit - to make local commits
 * git svn dcommit - to push your local commits to svn

finally you can delete broken branch:
 * git branch -D notwork ; -D means force delete
