"man patch" tells me:

If the entire diff is indented by a consistent amount, or if a context
diff  contains lines ending in CRLF or is encapsulated one or more times
by prepending "- " to lines starting with "-" as specified by Internet
RFC 934,  this is  taken  into  account.

So I think it doesn't matter for the patch. Why anyone would want lines
end in cr/lf is a wholly different discussion ;-)
