What do you mean?  As far as I can tell, if you have

    [submodule "var"]
        path = var
        ignore = dirty

in $GIT_DIR/config, a work-tree-dirty submodule "var" is not
reported by "git status" and "git commit" without your patch, and
your patch does not seem to break that.  The only difference your
patch makes is that if you had the above three-line block in
the .gitmodules file and not in $GIT_DIR/config, "git status"
ignored the dirtyness in the working tree, but "git commit" did
notice and report it.

What am I missing?
