The previous test `set_fake_editor` already, though I am unsure
about the current directory. It turns out that the setting of the fake
editor is done via environment variable using absolute path to
the generated `fake_editor.sh`, hence it works even when
invoking a rebase in another directory/repo. Spooky.

Also we do want to be able to skip previous tests,
which this might be a problem for. Can we have a 'setup'
that sets up the fake editor instead of repeating it here or
hoping the previous tests has run? (Calling for a refactoring
during a regression fix is bad taste, so maybe just take this
patch as is and put it to the #leftoverbits ?)

There are a couple of submodule related flags:

#define DIFF_OPT_IGNORE_SUBMODULES   (1 << 18)
...
#define DIFF_OPT_DIRTY_SUBMODULES    (1 << 24)
#define DIFF_OPT_IGNORE_UNTRACKED_IN_SUBMODULES (1 << 25)
#define DIFF_OPT_IGNORE_DIRTY_SUBMODULES (1 << 26)
#define DIFF_OPT_OVERRIDE_SUBMODULE_CONFIG (1 << 27)

We don't need to pay attention to 24,25,26 here, because
DIRTY_SUBMODULES and IGN_* are only used to specify further
interest, the generic INORE_SUBMODULES turns off any submodule
handling. (so if we were to turn them on as well, it would still be correct,
though it may have performance impact -- I shortly wondered if we'd rather
want to have a mask covering all submodule related flags, specifically
all flags invented in the future ;) )

The patch looks good to me (i.e. I am convinced by review it fixes the
regression), so maybe we can put the test refactor on top of it, which
then doesn't need fast-tracking down to the maintenance track?

Thanks,
Stefan
