I just copied the shortcut that they were adding themselfes as submodule
in 'setup submodule'. The whole setup of submodules in this test is like
this. This way we already had a nested submodule structure which I could
just add.

I agree that this is unrealistic so I can change that in the test I am
adding. But from what I have seen, this shortcut is taken in quite some
places when dealing with submodules.

Cheers Heiko
