You are reading the patch correctly.

and in the light of this patch, we'd want to have a cache the flag if the
regular config contains any submodule related things, so for now a static
seems to be the best option and once we have the repo object we'd
have a bit from the flags section (assuming we'll have a flags
section down the road):

struct repo {
    struct regular_config *config_ptr;
    unsigned config_has_submodule_stuff : 1;
    unsigned config_loaded_submodule_config : 1;

Then the caching decision would be:

static int submodule_config(const char *var, const char *value, void *cb)
       struct repo *r = cb;
       if (!strcmp(var, "submodule.fetchjobs")) {
               r->config_has_submodule_stuff = 1;
               parallel_jobs = git_config_int(var, value);
               if (parallel_jobs < 0)
                       die(_("negative values not allowed for
               return 0;
       } else if (starts_with(var, "submodule.")) {
               r->config_has_submodule_stuff = 1;
               return parse_submodule_config_option(var, value);
       } else if (!strcmp(var, "fetch.recursesubmodules")) {
               r->config_has_submodule_stuff = 1;
               config_fetch_recurse_submodules =
parse_fetch_recurse_submodules_arg(var, value);
               return 0;
       return 0;

void load_submodule_config(struct repo *r)
      # assume r->config_has_submodule_stuff and config_loaded_submodule_config
      # was set to 0 on repo init
      if (r->config_loaded_submodule_config)

      git_config(submodule_config, r);
      r->config_loaded_submodule_config = 1;

That said, I agree that the

>> >> +static enum {
>> >> +} submodule_config_reading;

with its global state is counterproductive for your series, but I see
an easy integration path. As we do not have the repo struct,
I proposed it this way to make submodule progress.
