Since git 2.0.0 starting git gui in a submodule using a gitfile fails with
the following error:

   No working directory ../../../<path>

   couldn't change working directory
   to "../../../<path>": no such file or
   directory

This is because "git rev-parse --show-toplevel" is only run when git gui
sees a git version of at least 1.7.0 (which is the version in which the
--show-toplevel option was introduced). But it uses vsatisfies to check
that, which is documented to return false when the major version changes,
which is not what we want here.

Change vsatisfies to vcompare when testing for a git version to avoid the
problem when the major version changes (but still use vsatisfies in those
places where the Tk version is checked). This is done for both the place
that caused the reported bug and another spot where the git version is
tested for another feature.

Yup, looks like vsatisfies is doing just what it is supposed to (according
to http://www.astro.princeton.edu/~rhl/Tcl-Tk_docs/tcl/package.n.html):

   package vsatisfies version1 version2
       Returns 1 if scripts written for version2 will work unchanged
       with version1 (i.e. version1 is equal to or greater than version2
       and they both have the same major version number), 0 otherwise.

The bump in the major number from 1 to 2 makes vsatisfies assume that the
version is not compatible anymore, I believe we should have used vcompare
here and in another place.
