Because your patch (wrongly) has Windows lineendings (before sending).
The attachment is plaintext, and so it's allowed to change lineendings
to network convention of and Unix lineendings - that's exactly the
difference between "plaintext" and "binary" during transmission. In
fact, the result is better than if it was sent as-is, because other
people on Unix would have a slight problem applying your patch with
Windows lineendings.

In short:
- Set your text editor to Windows lineendings
- Nothing was broken
