[tor-dev] Git users, enable fsck by default!

See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=813157 for more
information why.

The tl;dr here is:
   * By default Git doesn't verify the sha1 checksums it receives by default.
   * It doesn't look like we've got any inconsistencies in our
repositories I use, though. That's good!
   * To turn on verification, I think you run:

    git config --add  transfer.fsckobjects true
    git config --add  fetch.fsckobjects true
    git config --add  receive.fsckobjects true
