I use:

autocmd BufNewFile,BufRead *.patch setlocal textwidth=60

in ~/.vimrc - i.e. 60 cols.

'git log' adds 4 leading spaces to commit messages and then if you
look at it via a small terminal it can quickly wrap at the end,
making the commit log harder to read.

Also, commit logs get quoted in emails and if we reply to that in up
to a depth of 4, the colums do get eaten up quickly.

60 cols sounds like a reasonable compromise. There's no 'written'
rule for this AFAIK, i just do it for all changes i commit, to
increase commit quality.
