Mockup of the dialog

* open commit dialog
* click on a button "View as patch" (or "Create patch") -> tab with readonly patch content will be opened. Now you can see the changes of the whole commit at one glance (issues regarding eol-changes can be spotted this way; this way the review is even faster than showing the diff of every changed file)
* in the patch tab the user can also click on a button "Save patch..." (or "Export patch...") to persist the patch to the filesystem
