This should have been 'content' rather than 'contents', given my grep below...

Do you mean
    test_commit -C path hello
because test_commit needs at least one positional argument (which will
serve as contents, message, filename, and tag)?  Anyway, yeah, doing
this would remove the whole innermost subshell -- the cd, the echo,
the git add, and the git commit.

Um, at this point, I'm adding a regular file -- not a submodule.  Also,
this git add will disappear if I use test_commit.  Perhaps you meant
one of the other 'git add's?

This also disappears with test_commit.

Addressed below...

I probably shouldn't have redirected stdout and stderr here; makes it
harder for you to see what's happening, especially since I don't test
either in any way.

Yeah, if there was a handy
test_string_exists_in_some_file_in_current_directory I could have used
that, but seems like an oddly specific special test function, so I
just added an echo so someone watching the test output under --verbose
could see how far the test got.

Hmm, I obviously wasn't nearly as clear as I thought I was.  Thinking
it over, two things may have thrown you off:

1) I had a typo ('content' vs. 'contents')
2) I didn't just check what was currently failing but other things
that should be true for this test.

For item 2, I've had multiple cases in the past where I created a
minimal test, only to find that if I had more carefully checked the
expected results that it would have prevented a future bug.  Also, it
was harder in the future to figure out, because I no longer remembered
the context for the test setup.  So, in this test I check the contents
of the index, make sure that the submodule is still present, and then
I finally check for the thing that currently fails:

commit B added a file called 'path'; its contents should appear
somewhere in the directory for the user to use when trying to resolve
the failed merge.  It cannot appear at 'path' (there's a submodule in
the way from commit A), but it should be present somewhere, and in
particular I'd expect it in the same directory.  So, I simply grep all
files in the current directory for the string (and ignore errors about
'grep: path is a directory').

Does that help?  If so, I'll submit a reroll with the changes and a
few extra comments.
