submodule: teach rm to remove submodules unless they contain a git directory
Currently using "git rm" on a submodule - populated or not - fails with this error: fatal: git rm: '<submodule path>': Is a directory This made sense in the past as there was no way to remove a submodule without possibly removing unpushed parts of the submodule's history contained in its .git directory too, so erroring out here protected the user from possible loss of data. But submodules cloned with a recent git version do not contain the .git directory anymore, they use a gitfile to point to their git directory which is safely stored inside the superproject's .git directory. The work tree of these submodules can safely be removed without losing history, so let's teach git to do so. Using rm on an unpopulated submodule now removes the empty directory from the work tree and the gitlink from the index. If the submodule's directory is missing from the work tree, it will still be removed from the index. Using rm on a populated submodule using a gitfile will apply the usual checks for work tree modification adapted to submodules (unless forced). For a submodule that means that the HEAD is the same as recorded in the index, no tracked files are modified and no untracked files that aren't ignored are present in the submodules work tree (ignored files are deemed expendable and won't stop a submodule's work tree from being removed). That logic has to be applied in all nested submodules too. Using rm on a submodule which has its .git directory inside the work trees top level directory will just error out like it did before to protect the repository, even when forced. In the future git could either provide a message informing the user to convert the submodule to use a gitfile or even attempt to do the conversion itself, but that is not part of this change.
