[PATCH 09/11] submodule: fetch in submodules git directory instead of in worktree




This patch started as a refactoring to make 'get_next_submodule' more
readable, but upon doing so, I realized that git-fetch actually doesn't
need to be run in the worktree. So let's run it in the git dir instead.

That should pave the way towards fetching submodules that are currently
not checked out.
