For 'add -i' and 'add -p' the only action we can take on a dirty
submodule entry (from the superproject perspective) is its SHA-1. The
content changes inside do not matter, at least until interactive add has
--recurse-submodules or something.

Ignore all dirty changes to reduce the questions 'add -i' and 'add -p'
throw at the user when submodules are dirty.

 $DAYJOB started to use submodules and this annoys me so much when I
 use 'git add -p'. I'm neither very familiar with add--interactive nor
 submodules code but this seems to work. Hopefully it's a correct
 change.

I would think this fixes your problem and it looks correct.

However I wonder about some subtle detail:
the "dirty" setting will ignore anything inside the submodule, and
only pay attention to the delta in gitlinks between HEAD and index.

Maybe we'd want to have a mode "dirty-except-submodule-HEAD",
which would ignore all submodule worktree changes, but if its HEAD
is different than the gitlink in the superproject index or HEAD, such that
checking out a different revision inside the submodule is not lost
when staging things in the superproject for a new commit?

Wait, why does diff-files, the command about worktree and index, look
at HEAD? Testing, testing... no I think it still works as expected

If I reset foo/.git/HEAD back to 4152169... then diff-files
--ignore..=dirty returns empty. So I think it does check submodule's
HEAD.

For 'add -i' and 'add -p', the only action we can take on a dirty
submodule entry is update the index with a new value from its HEAD. The
content changes inside (from its own index, untracked files...) do not
matter, at least until 'git add -i' learns about launching a new
interactive add session inside a submodule.

Ignore all other submodules changes except HEAD. This reduces the number
of entries the user has to check through in 'git add -i', and the number
of 'no' they have to answer to 'git add -p' when dirty submodules are
present.

 v2 now has some tests. The commit message is rephrased a bit.
