Thanks, but that doesn't even mention 'whitespace'.  It talks only
about EOL conversion, which, as I've said, is disabled in my Git
installation (core.autcrlf is unset, which means it's false by
default).  I hope everybody else here does the same, although that
page (and numerous others I've seen) all advise to turn on EOL
conversion, which is simply wrong.

After reading all that stuff, including the gitattributes man page, I
have only one question: why files like dostorture.c are marked
"-whitespace" and not "whitespace=cr-at-eol"?  The latter seems to be
more specific, and still allows detection of trailing whitespace in
files with DOS-style EOL.
