mdsal is not getting updated to the proper commit, which should be

but it begs the quesiton why we have to manually do this?

Robert, Michael: Thank you, I've merged the change #75167 and restarted AR #6. The .gitmodules seem to set to the correct branch (v2.6.x), I am not sure about this.

The issue is when we update the submodules recursively AR should get forwarded to the head on the remote but instead it gets forwarded locally.
Using the `--remote` on the CLI seem to get us the latest changes.

$ git submodule update --init 
Submodule path 'mdsal': checked out '3e5d53eefead8a109f72b9d658432050d01e8cf1'

$ git submodule update --init --remote 
Submodule path 'mdsal': checked out '3346408b80c3dd860d42f18469c7e35aa01cfee3'

It is absolutely critical that when we update .gitmodules and the to update the submodule reference pointer:

is merged ASAP. Gerrit will only auto-update submodule subscriptions for a submodule, if the submodule is on the latest HEAD of branch. If we merged the submodule update patch after MD-SAL's v2.6.x branch has moved, the HEAD won't be in sync anymore and Gerrit will not pull in the updates.
