Commit message syntax highlighting in Vim with submodules

Ever tried committing inside a git submodule, only to find that Vim doesn't syntax highlight your commit message? Worry no more!

Simply save the following file as ~/.vim/filetype.vim

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.git/modules/**/COMMIT_EDITMSG setf gitcommit
autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.git/modules/**/config setf gitconfig
