I see my mistake now, thanks. (also thanks Stefan). It worked so I
assumed magically it's the right thing without thinking too hard. But
I don't think simply removing the CR characters is the right thing, we
should interpret them according to coding-system-eol-type, right?

It's more complicated, but I can give it a try (maybe meanwhile commit
a patch that does what you say to fix the current unusable state of
diff-apply-hunk in this situation)

So, say a diff hunk contains just a couple of lines with CRLF and a
couple of lines just LF. If applied to a buffer that is all CRLF, I
would say that applying this hunk should eventually provoke the normal
Emacs behaviour of highlighting all CR's except for the two lines with
LF. Is it worth it? What do you both think?
