    Absolutely not. It would always fetch HEAD from the KVM tool repo. A
    submodule ties each supermodule commit to a particular submodule commit.

    But I'm pretty certain that, when testing 3.2 with KVM tool in a couple
    of years, I want all the shining new features you added in this time; I
    don't want the old end-2011 code. Same if I'm bisecting kernels, I
    don't want to build KVM tool once per bisection cycle, do I?
