In f9ee2fcdfa (grep: recurse in-process using 'struct repository',
2017-08-02), we introduced a call to repo_read_gitmodules in builtin/grep
to simplify the submodule handling.

After ff6f1f564c4 (submodule-config: lazy-load a repository's .gitmodules
file, 2017-08-03) this is no longer necessary, but that commit did not
cleanup the whole tree, but just show cased the new way how to deal with
submodules in ls-files.

Cleanup the only remaining caller to repo_read_gitmodules outside of
submodule.c

Here is the stand-alone change.

The patch [1] contains the lines as deleted below in the context lines
but they would not conflict as there is one empty line between the changes
in this patch in [1].

Not sure if I am entitled to formally ack it, but:

Well, submodule-config.c has its implementation and another caller,
which technically is outside submodule.c ;-)  repo_read_gitmodules
has two more callers in unpack-trees.c these days, so perhaps we can
do without this last paragraph.

The log message of the above one singles out "grep" as a special
case and explalins why it did not touch, by the way.  You probably
need to explain the reason why "this is no longer necessary" a bit
better than the above---as it stands, it is "ff6f1f564c4 said it
still is necessary, I say it is not".

i.e. there is a typo in my commit message.
I meant to say submodule-config.c

Gah, looking at that code, did we have any reason to rush that series?

That is true.

For grep, the reason seems to be, that we check is_submodule_active
based off the index, i.e. using
   module = submodule_from_path(repo, &null_oid, path);
as the deciding factor, which falls in line with lazyloading.

However the use of the specialized gitmodules_config_oid
in grep is also guarded by the same commit ff6f1f564c4.

Going back to the use case of unpack-trees.c,
I think that we need to keep it there as alternatives
seem to be more complicated.

So I guess I'll just resend with a better commit message.

Thanks,
Stefan
