git: patch does not apply

I have a certain patch called my_pcc_branch.patch.

When I try to apply it, I get following message:

$ git apply --check my_pcc_branch.patch
warning: src/main/java/.../AbstractedPanel.java has type 100644, expected 100755
error: patch failed: src/main/java/.../AbstractedPanel.java:13
error: src/main/java/.../AbstractedPanel.java: patch does not apply

What does it mean?

How can I fix this problem?

Johannes Sixt from the msysgit@googlegroups.com mailing list suggested using following command line arguments:

git apply --ignore-space-change --ignore-whitespace mychanges.patch

This solved my problem.
