Here's why I does it the other way around (ie. fix on branch and then
merge to master): when a bug is reported on a released version, it feels
more natural to do the fix against what was released, and then get some
kind of patch or hotfix on that out the door, and then looking in to
moving that fix to master.

Taking an unreported fix from master and applying it to a relase branch
with a cherry pick also happens, but for that to happen, it has to be a
fix to an OMG!! condition (potential catastrophic data loss, or a high
enough crash rate to be annoying), and those bugs are thankfully few...
