I just did:
 git clone git://git.qemu-project.org/qemu.git
 cd qemu
 git submodule init
 git submodule update

and that worked for me.

(We do occasionally accidentally introduce an error where we
update the submodule but the qemu-project.org mirror of a
git repo hasn't yet moved forward to include the reference.
But it seems to all be OK at the moment.)

As an aside you typically don't need all the submodules if
you're just interested in building QEMU. (You might need
the dtc module but configure will tell you if you do and
also what command to ues to just get the dtc submodule
and not anything else.)
