From the GeoServer user-list:

The basic way under Linux systems is to save the patch file on the file system and apply it using "path -p0 < file.patch", or if the patch has been generated with git, "patch -p1 < file.patch", normally from the root of the GeoServer checkout.

The patch command is available also under Windows, just search for it.

Other tools can apply patches too. For example if you have the set of projects loaded in Eclipse you can apply a patch using "Team/apply patch" and point it to the file.
