git submodule foreach "git checkout master ||:"

as this will simply skip the offending submodules. The "||:" also works for
rebase etc.

Well, I would checkout "master" on the super-project (as this contains what
will be released, without "sync" in this case) and on all sub-projects. You
most probably need to run "git submodule update --init" in this case. Then
checkout "develop" on all the project that you want to compile against master.

Note: completely untested :-)
