This round hasn't seen any further comment, and I think all the
previously raised issues have been resolved in this version, so
I am tempted to merge it to 'next'.

One thing that I noticed is that "git submodule -h" does not give
any hint about --dissociate even though it talks about --reference
with these patches applied, and I think it probably should [*1*].

We can make such an update as incremental patch on top of these, if
people cared enough about this, without a further reroll of these
three patches.



*1* It's not like we must list each and every option available---it
is perfectly fine to omit less common ones to keep the "-h" output
manageably short.  But I have a feeling that "--reference" and
"--dissociate" should probably be at a similar level of importance,
and if we list one we probably should show the other, too.
