[PATCH 8/9] fetch: retry fetching submodules if sha1 were not fetched




Currently when git-fetch is asked to recurse into submodules, it dispatches
a plain "git-fetch -C <submodule-dir>" (and some submodule related options
such as prefix and recusing strategy, but) without any information of the
remote or the tip that should be fetched.

This works surprisingly well in some workflows (such as using submodules
as a third party library), while not so well in other scenarios, such
as in a Gerrit topic-based workflow, that can tie together changes
(potentially across repositories) on the server side. One of the parts
of such a Gerrit workflow is to download a change when wanting to examine
it, and you'd want to have its submodule changes that are in the same
topic downloaded as well. However these submodule changes reside in their
own repository in their own ref (refs/changes/<int>).

Retry fetching a submodule if the object id that the superproject points
to, cannot be found.

This doesn't support fetching to FETCH_HEAD yet, but only into a local
branch. To make fetching into FETCH_HEAD work, we need some refactoring
in builtin/fetch.c to adjust the calls to 'check_for_new_submodule_commits'
that is coming in the next patch.
