bash completion: factor submodules into dirty state

In the implementation of GIT_PS1_SHOWDIRTYSTATE in 738a94a (bash:
offer to show (un)staged changes, 2009-02-03), I cut&pasted the
git-diff invocations from dirty-worktree checks elsewhere, carrying
along the --ignore-submodules option.

As pointed out by Kevin Ballard, this doesn't really make sense: to
the _user_, a changed submodule counts towards uncommitted changes.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
