You're probably interested in this patch:

I, too, faced the problem of checking out files on a platform with a
different EOL-style compared to the platform that did the actual
building. Thankfully I was able to switch to all GNU tools which sanely
handle whatever EOL-style you've got, so it wasn't a problem for me.
