We can probably also put a workaround in scripts/git-submodules.sh to
automatically change the git origin of all currently checked out
submodules, so that the change doesn't affect devs at all.

IOW, I'd suggest respinning this series without the submodule
changes, as that's a functional change, and the rest of this
is all non-functional changes.
