OK, that seems to work and to be quite helpful.

Minor nit: "git add -u" could use the same fileset as "git commit". But
I don't know whether completion can act upon the presence of options.
Currently, it also includes untracked files (just like without -u) but
omits unmodified and ignored ones, which is already quite an improvement.

I won't be able to review the completion code but may contribute a few
lines to t/, possibly.
