[PATCH v5 7/9] 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" of the submodule
actually doesn't need to be run in the submodules worktree. So let's run
it in its git dir instead.

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

This patch leaks the cp->dir in get_next_submodule, as any further
callback in run_processes_parallel doesn't have access to the child
process any more. In an early iteration of this patch, the function
get_submodule_repo_for directly returned the string containing the
git directory, which would be a better design choice for this patch.

However the next patch both fixes the memory leak of cp->dir and also has
a use case for using the full repository handle of the submodule, so
it makes sense to introduce the get_submodule_repo_for here already.
