Output is as follows, I don't have a trunk directory so it's been excluded:

$ svn add wc1\test.txt
A wc1\test.txt

$ svn commit wc1 -m "add"
Adding wc1\test.txt
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 1.

$ cp test_v2.txt wc1\test.txt

$ svn diff wc1 > out

$ svn revert wc1\test.txt
Reverted 'wc1\test.txt'

$ patch -d wc1 < out
patching file 'test.txt'
Hunk #2 succeeded at 7 (offset 2 lines)
