I'm getting this warning:

  warning: Could not find section in .gitmodules where path=XXX

whenever I use "git mv" to move a file in a repository containing a
submodule. The file is outside the submodule and is completely
unrelated, so I do not understand the intent of the warning.

My understanding (without looking at the code in detail) is that Git
tries to be clever about submodule renames, hence checks whether the
source file is a submodule. But then if the lookup fails, it should just
silently move on to "normal file move" mode I guess...
