Since grep learned to recurse into submodules in 0281e487fd
(grep: optionally recurse into submodules, 2016-12-16),
using --recurse-submodules along with --no-index makes Git
die().

This is unfortunate because if submodule.recurse is set in a user's
~/.gitconfig, invoking `git grep --no-index` either inside or outside
a Git repository results in

    fatal: option not supported with --recurse-submodules

Let's allow using these options together, so that setting submodule.recurse
globally does not prevent using `git grep --no-index`.

Using `--recurse-submodules` should not have any effect if `--no-index`
is used inside a repository, as Git will recurse into the checked out
submodule directories just like into regular directories.

My initial reaction to this patch was: "but why would you try to combine
`--recurse-submodules` with `--no-index`?". The `submodule.recurse`
reference made me think again, though.

And then it hit me: by `--no-index`, what we _really_ mean to say is:
ignore that this _might_ be tracked in Git. And that obviously means that
there cannot be any submodules to recurse into, as far as `git diff
--no-index` is concerned.

So I think your patch makes a ton of sense.

Thanks,
Dscho
