Re: [PATCH 1/4] entry.c: submodule recursing: respect force flag correctly

In case of a non-forced worktree update, the submodule movement is tested
in a dry run first, such that it doesn't matter if the actual update is

if needed.

Should we be consistent (with the "else" block below and with the existing code) to use "state->force ? SUBMODULE_MOVE_HEAD_FORCE : 0" instead of 0? (I glanced briefly through the code and SUBMODULE_MOVE_HEAD_FORCE might have no effect anyway if "old" is NULL, but it's probably still better to be consistent.)

It seems to me that this is independent of the entry.c change, and might be better in its own patch. (Or if it is not, maybe the subject should be "entry, unpack-trees: propagate force when submodule recursing" or something like that, containing the names of both modified components.)

Also, you mentioned in the parent message that this patch is required for patch 3. Is only the entry.c part required, or unpack-trees.c, or both?

I don't understand the relevance of this comment - it is indeed set there, but "state" is not used there until after the invocation to unlink_entry so it doesn't seem related.
