By fixing the tools. My main gripe with git still is its lack of serious
file rename/copy tracking (though that can be worked around manually
While I can't speak for the git/gerrit communities, I'd guess they
accept patches.

As for what we can do with our own tools, and in particular on AMD
boards: cut down on the duplication. There's lots of stuff in mainboards
that - to me - looks it really belongs into chipset code. That should
simplify reviews even more than hacks to work around git's metadata
tracking limitations.
