FOudn it in g-bp manual. One has to create an orphan branch upstream:
git checkout --orphan upstream
git rm -rf .
git commit --allow-empty -m 'Initial upstream branch.'
git checkout master

and then import the orig.tar.gz with git-import-orig

If there was a upstream branch before this is a pain ... happened
to me with texinfo, I am recreating the git repo by now.
