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?
