hardcoding hash values burdens the plan to migrate to another
hash function,

    rev1=$(git -C submodule rev-parse --short HEAD^)
    rev2=$(git -C submodule rev-parse --short HEAD)

and then use ${rev1}..${rev2} ?

Yes, but see
Documentation/technical/hash-function-transition.txt
that a couple people are working on. Let's be nice to them. :-)
