I think you are talking about git-patch-id.

    Add "git-patch-id" program to generate patch ID's.

    A "patch ID" is nothing but a SHA1 of the diff associated
    with a patch, with whitespace and line numbers ignored.  As
    such, it's "reasonably stable", but at the same time also
    reasonably unique, ie two patches that have the same "patch
    ID" are almost guaranteed to be the same thing.

    IOW, you can use this thing to look for likely duplicate
