add--interactive: ignore submodule changes except HEAD
For 'add -i' and 'add -p', the only action we can take on a dirty submodule entry is update the index with a new value from its HEAD. The content changes inside (from its own index, untracked files...) do not matter, at least until 'git add -i' learns about launching a new interactive add session inside a submodule. Ignore all other submodules changes except HEAD. This reduces the number of entries the user has to check through in 'git add -i', and the number of 'no' they have to answer to 'git add -p' when dirty submodules are present.
