I ran into trouble when trying to apply a patch file generated with Windows Git to a mercurial repository through cygwin. It wasn't recognizing the files since the paths in the patch file were using Windows path separators.
The spec doesn't seem to mention path separators: https://www.gnu.org/software/diffutils/manual/html_node/Detailed-Unified.html#Detailed-Unified
But, both the Windows Git and Mercurial clients I have installed are handling unix path separators just fine. So, in this PR I've changed the patch file generators to use unix path separators explicitly, which solves the problem.
