There is no such thing.  It's a sham.  What Tollef's patch does is fill
in a string with a fictitious value which may or may not be related in
some way to the actual version of one or more of the files in libvarnish
in some sort of RCS which may or may not be the official repo.  Git
hashes, for instance, have meaning only in the context of the specific
git tree from which Varnish was built, and the way git works, every user
has their own tree.
