I looked at the tests, and the tests expected git status to respect the
ignore settings, but there were no tests that expected git submodule
summary to work this way.  Perhaps this is a failure in the tests.  I
got feedback that git submodule summary should *not* change, and nothing
until now to contradict that.

If the decision is that this should change both, then fine, I'll reroll.
But it's not reasonable to keep going back and forth: we should make a
decision and stick to it.
