It looks like some data structure is kept in memory, and that data
structure grows very large when cloning/converting your repository.
In a perfect world, the Git code would be improved to allow the data
structure to be put on disk. But in order to finish your task, the
fastest solution is probably to add a large swap file/partition to
your system temporarily, and then run the process again.
