Not just the lines, but the whole message per submodule (i.e.
the "Cloning... " lione and its accompanying "done") is one
atomic unit. These messages are from processes invoked via
run_processes_parallel (in run-command.h), which buffers
all output per process.

This test was last touched in c66410ed32a (submodule init:
redirect stdout to stderr, 2016-05-02), merged as f2c96ceb57a
(Merge branch 'sb/submodule-init', 2016-05-17)

The parallelizing effort was made before that
(2335b870fa7 (submodule update: expose parallelism to the
user, 2016-02-29) via bdebbeb3346 (Merge branch
'sb/submodule-parallel-update', 2016-04-06)), but did not
review existing tests for the newly introduced raciness.

Thanks for the fix!
