The Git installation under Windows set mine to true (not input).

I don't think that is needed. I believe the 'patch' program will sort
that out by itself. I have sent numerous patches to FPC and Lazarus
(both those repositories are git ones on my Linux system). Nobody has
ever complained that the EOL style was wrong. I also don't specify the
--no-prefix when creating patches. Again, the 'patch' program can handle
those a/... b/... prefixes for the committer without problems.
