git-submodule: provide easy way of adding new submodules

To make a submodule effectively usable, the path and
a URL where the submodule can be cloned need to be stored
in .gitmodules. This subcommand takes care of setting
this information after cloning the new submodule.
Only the index is updated, so, if needed, the user may still
change the URL or switch to a different branch of the submodule
before committing.

 SYNOPSIS
 --------
+'git-submodule' [--quiet] [-b branch] add <repository> [<path>]
 'git-submodule' [--quiet] [--cached] [status|init|update] [--] [<path>...]
 
 
 COMMANDS
 --------
+add::
+	Add the given repository as a submodule at the given path
+	to the changeset to be committed next.  In particular, the
+	repository is cloned at the specified path, added to the
+	changeset and registered in .gitmodules.   If no path is
+	specified, the path is deduced from the repository specification.
+
 status::
 	Show the status of the submodules. This will print the SHA-1 of the
 	currently checked out commit for each submodule, along with the
 -q, --quiet::
 	Only print error messages.
 
+-b, --branch::
+	Branch of repository to add as submodule.
+
 --cached::
 	Display the SHA-1 stored in the index, not the SHA-1 of the currently
 	checked out submodule commit. This option is only valid for the
 #!/bin/sh
