I still think we can drop this conditional entirely. The complete call
graph looks like:

  git_config_from_file
    -> git_parse_file
      -> get_next_char
      -> get_value
          -> get_next_char
          -> parse_value
              -> get_next_char
      -> get_base_var
          -> get_next_char
          -> get_extended_base_var
              -> get_next_char

That is, every path to get_next_char happens while we are in
git_config_from_file, and that function guarantees that cf = &top, and
that top.f != NULL.  We do not have to even do any analysis of the
conditions for each call, because we never change "cf" nor "top.f"
except when we set them in git_config_from_file.
