Without having this tested:
I'd say the merge will go just fine. You would only get a conflict, if
you changed the EOL's both on trunk and your branch *differently*. But
you only changed the EOLs on trunk and left it on your branch alone.
So you shouldn't get any conflicts (but of course, every file will
show up as "merged" because every line has a changed EOL).
