I have 3 different gitconfigs for use with Windows, Linux, and Cygwin. 
 Although Linux and Cygwin are the same in the CRLF area there are other 
areas  that I need it to be different.

---Windows---
[core]
autocrlf = true
safecrlf = false
---Linux and Cygwin---
[core]
autocrlf = input
safecrlf = false
