So I'd _almost_ suggest just starting from a clean slate after all. Keeping the old history around, of course, but not necessarily putting it into git now. It would just force everybody who is getting used to git in the first place to work with a 3GB archive from day one, rather than getting into it a bit more gradually.
Sure. We can export the 2.6.12-rc2 version of the git'ed history tree and start from there. Then the first changeset has a parent, which just lives in a different place. Thats the only difference to your repository, but it would change the sha1 sums of all your changesets.
at least start with a full release. say 2.6.11
the history won't be blank, but it's far more likly that people will care about the details between 2.6.11 and 2.6.12 and will want to go back before -rc2
