Even if the input file has unix format and the patch file has unix format
and the mount mode is binary
the patch.exe from cygwin 1.1.0 generates an output file with DOS (CR/LF)
line ending. The binary
option doesn't work help says:

--binary  Read and write data in binary mode (no effect on this platform).
