Currently when git-fetch is asked to recurse into submodules, it dispatches
a plain "git-fetch -C <submodule-dir>" (and some submodule related options
such as prefix and recusing strategy, but) without any information of the
remote or the tip that should be fetched.

This works surprisingly well in some workflows, not so well in others,
which this series aims to fix.

The first patches provide new basic functionality and do some refactoring;
the interesting part is in the two last patches.

This was discussed in
and I think I addressed all feedback so far.


Stefan Beller (9):
  string-list: add string_list_{pop, last} functions
  sha1-array: provide oid_array_filter
  submodule.c: fix indentation
  submodule.c: sort changed_submodule_names before searching it
  submodule: move global changed_submodule_names into fetch submodule
  submodule.c: do not copy around submodule list
  submodule: fetch in submodules git directory instead of in worktree
  fetch: retry fetching submodules if sha1 were not fetched
  builtin/fetch: check for submodule updates for non branch fetches
