The patch is correct but the *nix patch utility cannot apply it
because it does not match the file that it tries to patch. It does not
know that it should ignore the line ends, nor anything about
svn:eol-style property. It might be that there are command line
options though.

There is official "svn patch" command now. I do not know whether "svn
patch" will apply the patch as is, but if it does not you may ask on
their users@ list.

There is "--ignore-whitespace" option but it does a bit more than just
ignoring end lines.

You can always pipe the patch through dos2unix utility or "tr '\r'" to
convert the line ends to match the *nix file.
