If an ".ini" style config is used, I think it'd be better to
put this stuff in .git/config under a proper section so that
any checking style script (checkpatch, smatch, smpl, etc)
has a standard place to put stuff.

I think what I posted requires less overall work and doesn't
need updating every time a new option is added, but overall
the capability isn't all that necessary.
