If the version you want to make the fix for has a tag in the github
repository, just create a branch that starts at the tag, do your changes
and do a pull request to add the branch.

IMHO, this would only happen with the 3rd option.

If the whole repository SVN was imported into git, and the git
repository hasn't been garbage collected or packed afterwards, any
commits after the latest tag of the 3.x branch should be there, you just
need to search for it using the reflog and start your branch from that
commit instead of the latest 3.x tag in the git repo.

If the commits are not there, you can just apply them as a series of
patches atop the latest git 3.x tag.

I think you already had a good one, but let if know if I misunderstood
or made a wrong assumption about what you want to do.
