RawDiff: use a stable signature for reproducible patches

Hendrik Meyer (xLabber) requested to merge t4cc0re/format-patch-no-sig into master

Set a stable signature for .patch endpoints to create reproducible patches

This commit adds the --signature flag set to GitLab to the format-patch git subcommand used in RawPatch of the Diff service.
This will result in the default signature of resulting .patch-files to be replaced with GitLab, resulting in more stable patches, that will not change file content based on the git version of the host (which is the default signature appended to the patch).
This is relevant to be able to generate checksums or signatures for patches referenced via a GitLab URL.

Implements #2842 (closed)
