Discussed this with Stefan, how about this:
We copy the repository from "repos" to "coreboot", mark "repos" (the
current one) as read-only.
The first steps in the new repository will be the various renames.

Migration is svn diff / new checkout / patch -p0.

That way, existing checkouts won't be harmed by svn up and developers
can migrate their checkouts when they feel like it.

The only drawback is that they can't simply "svn up" to stay up to date.
I consider this an incentive for devs to migrate relatively quickly.
