This is either incredibly brilliant or fundamentally broken. I'm
hoping for the former. :)
Your theory is: there is a client spec, and p4 knows how to
interpret these things, so instead of figuring out and
implementing the algorithms for %% and * and ... in git-p4, just
ask p4 directly.
Let me play with this for a bit. I wonder about the performance
aspects of doing a "p4 fstat" for every file. Would it be
possible to do one or a few batch queries higher up somewhere?
A few nit-picky questions below, just on the test bits, while I
play with your code.

Why do you need these?

How does the p4 sync help here?

It works! Cool.
