Following up on this as I'm finally getting around to implementing this
feature. I'm not too familiar with CGit's codebase, so I think it would
be easier to implement this as a separate "graph" page which is
identical to the log page except that it always displays a graph.

This graph page would only be shown in the navbar's tab list if the
"enable-commit-graph" option is set to "separate" in the configuration.
If it is set to "combined" then the graph page will be disabled and the
commit graph will be displayed on the log page as it currently is when
the "enable-commit-graph" option is set to "1".

In order to maintain backwards compatibility, the value "1" could also
be interpreted as the value "combined" since it has the same
functionality currently.

The value "none" (or "0" for backwards compatibility) would disable the
graph page as well as disabling the commit graph on the log page.

I've already started working on this as I want it for my own CGit site.
If this is something that the maintainer(s) want to integrate, I'll send
patches when I'm done.
