This sounds like undoing the good(?) part of the series that introduced
this regression, as before that we selectively loaded the submodule
config, which lead to confusion when you forgot it. Selectively *enabling*
the submodule config sounds like that state before?

Or do we *only* talk about enabling the ignore flag, while loading the
rest of the submodule config automatic?

Unrelated to the trickiness, I think we'd need to document the behavior
of the -a flag in git-add and git-commit better as adding the diff below
will depart from the "all" rule again, which I thought was a strong
motivator for Brandons series (IIRC).

This line partially reverts 5556808, taking 02f2f56bc377c28
into account.

This is an interesting take so far as it is all about *detecting* change
here via stat information and not like the previous (before the regression)
where it was about correcting output.

match_stat_with_submodule would grow its documentation to be
slightly more complicated as a result.

This basically inlines the function is_submodule_ignored,
except for the part:

    if (!options->flags.override_submodule_config)
        set_diffopt_flags_from_submodule_config(options, path);

but that was taken care off in match_stat_with_submodule in diff-lib?

This WIP looks really promising, thanks for looking into this!
