The committer working on https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=226941 noticed that the patch apparently has CRLF line endings, making it hard(er) to apply it properly.

I think it's a standard: https://stackoverflow.com/a/14217315
Looks like browser is supposed to convert newlines in input field
to CR LF. I just tried it on our test instance \r\n-s are part
of a request, not added later. Bugzilla doesn't perfomr any
transformation of copy-pasted attachment text and saves it as-is.
