I think this should work, based on what they explain in the article  
you linked:
1) add the following to your .git/config

[svn-remote "svn"]
         url = http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc
         fetch = trunk-gitsvn:refs/remotes/trunk

2) git svn fetch -r <last_revision_you_have>:HEAD

and then to link your old and new history:
1) get the commit hash of the first/oldest commit in this trunk-gitsvn  
branch ("hash-gitsvn-start")
2) get the commit hash of the last commit in your github mirror  
3) both of those should be for the same svn revision, but will  
obviously have a different hash. Now glue both together in the  
trunk-svn branch:
   git replace hash-gitsvn-start hash-git-end
