>From the new clone, I think the command sequence will be:

git checkout <your topic branch>
git merge master

and if everything looks fine:

git push origin HEAD

If you had uncommitted/unpushed changes in your old clone that you wanted to recover and you had time to just come by my office, I can try to help -- I would have expected the recursive submodule update to fix it for you.
