When a submodule is renamed, git log gives incorrect output:

^-- I expect this last line to tell me that the submodule has been
renamed, rather than that it has changed SHA to the same SHA.

See the attached shell script for a demo of this.  I tested with
b21ebb671bb as well as 2.18 and 2.19.  Thanks to Adam Bliss
