I think cherry-picking fixes from emacs-24 to master or vice-versa is
the best way:

* we tend to make commits in isolation, so there's no need to merge the
  whole branch in one shot.  It's also much less risky as far as

* "cherry-pick -x" will preserve the original commit info

* "git diff" and "git log --cherry-pick" will do what people expect
