Does the foo_v2/test.txt file already exist in branch2 before you try to apply?
i.e. does foo/test.txt exist in branch2?

What might be happening is: the commit modifies foo_v2/test.txt on
branch1, but foo/test.txt doesn't exist on branch2. So even when you
use the subtree option, there's no foo/test.txt on branch2 to
"receive" the changes of foo_v2/test.txt. This is an actual conflict
that git doesn't know what to do, so you have resolve it. This
probably means one of two things for you:

1. You _want_ foo/test.txt on branch2, then:
        git add foo/foo_v2/test.txt    # get the entire test.txt file
from that commit on branch1
        git mv foo/foo_v2/test.txt foo/test.txt    # move/rename the
file to the right location
2. You _don't_ want foo/test.txt on branch2, then:
        git rm foo/foo_v2/test.txt    # just remove it

And then run "git cherry-pick --continue" to continue with the cherry-pick.
