If "several" is manageably small, you can configure your refspecs to
rename them, e.g.
url = ...
fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master
fetch = +refs/heads/dhcpcd:refs/remotes/origin/dhcpcd
fetch = +refs/heads/DHCPCD:refs/remotes/origin/dhcpcd-u
$ git fetch origin
to use your remote tracking branch origin/dhcpcd-u to copy from
their DHCPCD. Then you can work on it the usual way.
$ git checkout -b dhcpcd-u origin/dhcpcd-u
$ work work work
For pushing, you can rename it back in a similar way.
$ git push origin dhcpcd-u:DHCPCD
which is a short-hand for
$ git push origin refs/heads/dhcpcd-u:refs/heads/DHCPCD
