So far so good, but please skip the following steps:

To recover after this 'git checkout', simply run another 'git
submodule update' in ~/cgit.

There's no direct relation between cgit and the git version installed
on your machine - cgit is just statically linked with libgit.a and
xdiff.a in the git submodule (and we use a submodule since these
libraries does not have a stable api).
