I will try to find a simple way to reproduce the actual problem asap.

First I thought I needed to play around with these parameters, as the
errors seemed to be related to white spaces, but as I saw it work on
another project, I guess that it was unnecessary. Also, I had a
similar problem when applying the patch on the test project at first
(I don't know why), but running git am --abort solved it.

I actually copied the submodule without the superproject to another
location, then created the patch from the copy. Afterwards I replaced
the submodule in the superproject with a version prior to the changes
introduced by the patch.
