Where we parse and set the value of the variable, we do this:

        else if (!strcmp("uploadpack.keepalive", var)) {
                keepalive = git_config_int(var, value);
                if (!keepalive)
                        keepalive = -1;

The condition may have to become "if (keepalive <= 0)".

Yeah, either way, the patch as-posted is good.  Thanks.
