ok, will do.

eh. I realize the patch evolved after writing the commit message initially.
Maybe:

  fix all submodule_move_head force flags

  Audit all callers of  submodule_move_head and make sure the
  force flag is handled correctly.

Well we would have wanted to put
  state->force ? SUBMODULE_MOVE_HEAD_FORCE : 0
here, but state is not passed into this function, so just make a comment
why we keep it at force all the time.
