Please describe the problem.

Setting remote.<name>.annex-checkuuid to false renders remote <name> inaccessible for git-annex, i.e., when using commands such as get.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

$ cat git-annex-checkuuid.sh
pushd $(mktemp -d)

git init origin
pushd origin
git annex init origin
touch blob
git annex add blob
git annex sync

popd
git clone origin clone
pushd clone
git annex init clone
git config remote.origin.annex-checkuuid false
git annex get blob

$ bash git-annex-checkuuid.sh
…
get blob
  Unable to access these remotes: origin

  Try making some of these repositories available:
    d27a9c2d-af76-4b01-8335-bc2d72a1d28a -- [origin]
failed
git-annex: get: 1 failed

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

git-annex version: 6.20180529-g33834140e
