Its more future proof especially because we have the difference bettwen
commondir and gitdir for worktrees.  Using the "repo_git_path" function
handles path rewritting when using worktrees.  Here (when working with
worktrees) "subrepo.gitdir" refers to the worktree specific gitdir while
"subrepo.commondir" refers to the global common gitdir where the
repository config actually lives.
