OK. gitmodule_config() does not read $GIT_DIR/config, but
cmd_status() and cmd_commit() call git_diff_basic_config() that is
called from git_diff_ui_config() to read submodule.$name.ignore from
it. So Orgad's patch is _only_ about submodule.$name.ignore that is
in in-tree .gitmodule; the log message shouldn't mention "config",
as setting configuration variables work for both status and commit
