[PATCH] worktree: allow to (re)move worktrees with uninitialized submodules

Uninitialized submodules have nothing valueable for us to be worried
about. They are just SHA-1. Let "worktree remove" and "worktree move"
continue in this case so that people can still use multiple worktrees
on repos with optional submodules that are never populated, like
sha1collisiondetection in git.git when checked out by doc-diff script.

Note that for "worktree remove", it is possible that a user
initializes a submodule (*), makes some commits (but not push), then
deinitializes it. At that point, the submodule is unpopulated, but the
precious new commits are still in


directory and we should not allow removing the worktree or we lose
those commits forever. The new directory check is added to prevent

(*) yes they are screwed anyway by doing this since "git submodule"
    would add submodule.* in $GIT_COMMON_DIR/config, which is shared
    across multiple worktrees. But it does not mean we let them be
    screwed even more.
