This description is slightly inaccurate since the re-roll. I think it is

  "git config" did not provide a way to set or access numbers larger
  than a native "int" on the platform; it now provides 64-bit signed
  integers on all platforms.

Not a big deal, but it may make your life easier if this description
ends up in the merge commit, and then you later try to write
ReleaseNotes off of it.

It also fixes the mis-detection of 32-bit overflow on certain platforms,
but the only likely way to trigger that was via "config --int" (unless
you are crazy enough to set gc.auto to 2g or something). But now that
git-config is 64-bit that does not even matter, and it is probably not
even worth mentioning in the release notes.
