Actually, the internal invocation may have to be

        $ git --super=a/b ls-files -- "a/b*"

if the desired overall output needs to be in the "--full-name" mode.
That is, the top-level recursive one may be

    cd a && git ls-files --recurse-submodules --full-name -- "b*"

This top-level "ls-files" will have "prefix" set to "a/".  Because
it is run in the "--full-name" mode, after finding that the
submodule at "a/b" matches the given pathspec and deciding to
recurse into it, it needs to arrange that paths stored in the index
of the submodule are prefixed with "a/b/", not with "b/", when
