There is no change for that patch to get applied. I even said in the bug item that I don't believe that approach works.

It took us a lot of time to get a lot simpler change to one single diff to work right (to add one line in case of EOLs at end of file do not match). And it still is perhaps (based on some bug reports) buggy. There are so many assumptions and dependencies around diff struct that it is very hard to change. There can be very surprising side-effects.

I'm not even sure we are solving correct problem or that we understand the problem good enough. It is a lot bigger problem than this single bug. It is about how we should make line filtering to work. What kinds of filtering we should offer for users.
