t7406: fix breakage on OSX
On OSX `wc` prefixes the output of numbers with whitespace, such that the `commit_count` would be "SP <NUMBER>". When using that in git submodule update --init --depth=$commit_count the depth would be empty and the number is interpreted as the pathspec. Fix this by not using `wc` and rather instruct rev-list to count. Another way to fix this is to remove the `=` sign after the `--depth` argument as then we are allowed to have more than just one whitespace between `--depth` and the actual number. Prefer the solution of rev-list counting as that is expected to be slightly faster and more self-contained within Git.
