Given your .gitattributes file, you will get:

core.autocrlf=false core.eol=CRLF    gives CRLF
core.autocrlf=false core.eol=LF      gives LF
core.autocrlf=false core.eol=native  gives CRLF under Windows, LF everywhere else
core.autocrlf=true                   gives CRLF (regardless of core.eol)

Does this help ?
