Once a user edits the file with an outside tool it is his/her
responsibility to add .gitattributes for the file.  In the reported
case Git is creating the file and already knows the crlf mode when
creating it.

I think Junio's proposal to teach "git config" to respect crlf
configuration is a more general solution.
