The hash is a SHA-1 hash of all the commit metadata: tree, timestamp,
*parent*, etc.

A commit created by cherry-picking will have a different parent (history),
a different tree (assuming some files in one branch are different from the
other branch), and other different metadata.  So it will have a different
hash from the commit or was based on.
