Since this uses cherry-pick, the changes that you want to apply have
to be on branch1 already.

Let's say your branch1 looks like:
and branch2 looks like:

And you want to apply commits B and C on branch2, but they modify
"foo_v1/" on branch1. You can tell git to apply the commits onto the
directory "foo/" on branch2:
    git checkout branch2    # make sure you're on branch2
    git cherry-pick -X subtree=foo B C    # pick the commits

If there's no conflict, the commits should apply cleanly, and your
branch2 would become like:
