I doubt it. That would only work if the accumulated changes in 
release-4-5-patches do not conflict with the code movement that has 
happened in master.

IIRC "git cherry-pick" would allow you to replicate a small number of 
commits from another branch, if that was desirable. Subsequently merging 
when cherry-picking has occurred should be smooth.
