$ git push REMOTE D:REMOTE_BRANCH
REMOTE is the name of the remote repository,
D is SHA-1 (or another name) of the specific commit you want to push,
REMOTE_BRANCH is the branch you want to update.
And you can always re-create the situation at hand locally and try it
out as the "remote repo" does not have to be physically remote -- it
can be a local directory as well, e.g.
$ git remote add foo ~/devel/foo.git
