what-changed --diffs might be helpful.

Assuming you mean that you'd like the changeset corresponding to an orig
tree and a mod tree on which you've applied several patches, the way to
do that is with replay or possibly replay --exact.

Get the orig revision, "replay" the patches you want to "combine" and
then create a changeset between that tree and the original tree.
