Patch does that already if you use the --binary option on Windows.

We decided long ago to preserve the EOL format, and I think that
decision was correct. As I wrote elsewhere, I use Patch from within
Emacs on Windows with no problems at all. Emacs has commands to force
specific EOL types when it saves files and communicates with
subordinate programs, so the defaults are not really important.
