No, my point was that this single git command is equivalent to yours
but does not modify timestamps of unmodified files, this is exactly
what you were asking for.
Disclaimer: I never worked with submodules, but I doubt that this
makes a difference here.

AFAICT gitk has not been mentioned yet, this graphical tool helps a
lot when you have to make such changes.
