Upstream security fixes related to .gitmodules handling. From the upstream announcement:
* Submodule "names" come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but we blindly append them to $GIT_DIR/modules to create our on-disk repo paths. This means you can do bad things by putting "../" into the name. We now enforce some rules for submodule names which will cause Git to ignore these malicious names (CVE-2018-11235). Credit for finding this vulnerability and the proof of concept from which the test script was adapted goes to Etienne Stalmans. * It was possible to trick the code that sanity-checks paths on NTFS into reading random piece of memory (CVE-2018-11233).
A preliminary patch to resolve an issue with zlib on aarch64 is also included (#1582555).
