The fact that you see it in the shortlog just means that the commit is
there. If you don't see it in the diff, it is because somebody else
applied the *same* patch, but as a separate commit, so the merge will
have just considered it a no-op.

It's not uncommon, and if it happens occasionally with duplicated
patches that's fine. If it happens a *lot* that two people keep
applying the same patch to their different branches, that implies that
there's some workflow problem where people continually keep on
stepping on each others toes, and that's a problem.

But the occasional "oops, that change was already in mainline" is fine.
