In my case it wouldn't because I do not modify my master branch, I
just fetch upstream, merge upstream/master into my local master branch
and switch to feature-work, then git push origin master will always
give me "Everything up-to-date" I suppose (that is what always happen
in my case/workflow).

And just learned, the answer to my question is, while in feature-work
branch, 'git push origin feature-work'. Which does what I wanted.
