I cannot reproduce your result: when I edebug the relevant code,
coding-system-for-read gets bound to undecided-dos before the call to
vc-setup-buffer, and stays at that value after the call returns.

Refraining from overriding coding-system-for-read/write if they are
already bound is a Good Thing, so I installed that change in the
emacs-25 branch.

However, re-reading the original bug report, I'm now confused.
Originally, you said that the ^M characters in the vc-diff output were
correct, and your problem was with applying the hunks.  If you now say
that the problem is with those ^M characters, and applying the hunks
after that is no longer a problem, then we can now close this bug.
Please clarify.
