the rational here is: pushing in submodule and forgetting a commit in
the super module is a common anti-pattern, so gerrit automate that.
and submodules A and B are presumably independent (the whole point of
submodules was, in their intent to allow for such loosely connected
section of code), so a commit in either should not be related in a
commit to the other.

There may be way around that... but for the rare case where that would
really be useful, It does not seems worth the aggravation.


Note: a huge majority of the commit made in submodules by dev outside
of timar(translation) and petr(rel-eng) are actually in binfilter...
which is going to be dropped in the not so far future....
