Thanks for sharing. Skimming over it, I see:

 - several of the changes look related to run-time relocation. There was
   a series that shipped in v2.18.0 related to this, so that may reduce
   your diff once you rebase.

 - The xcode_gitattributes() bits aren't likely to go upstream as-is.
   But possibly these could ship as a default $sysconfdir/gitattributes?

 - the rest look like assorted little fixes that probably could go
   upstream
