This takes the user to gitsubmodules(7), but with a hop to
git-submodule(1) along the way there:

	DESCRIPTION
	       Inspects, updates and manages submodules.

	       For more information about submodules, see gitsubmodules(7).

I suppose I'd prefer that it links directly to
linkgit:gitsubmodules[7] just because that would steer people toward
commands like "git checkout --recurse-submodules" instead of "git
submodule init".

With or without that tweak,

Tested using

	make -C Documentation/ git-config.1
	man Documentation/git-config.1

Thanks,
Jonathan
