Our own version generation in GIT-VERSION-GEN is somewhat sane by testing
if we have a .git dir, and use that as a signal whether the obtained
copy of git was obtained using git (clone/fetch) or if it is just a
downloaded tar ball.

Other scripts to generate a version are not as cautious and just run
"git describe". An error from git-describe is treated as a sufficient
signal to assume it is not a git repository.

When submodules come into play, this is not true, as a submodule
may be damaged instead, such that we're still in a git repository
but error out for the sake of reporting a severly broken submodule.

Add a flag to git-describe that instructs it to treat severe submodule
errors as "dirty" instead of erroring out.

Thanks,
Stefan
