If you want to cherry-pick the most recent one, I would first reset the
your branch head as if the "old patch" hasn't been applied.

Considering that the last commit is the old cherry-picked change (check
with "git log"), just reset to the previous state:

$ git reset HEAD^ --hard

And then just cherry-pick the new one (using the cmd-line from Gerrit).

There are probably other ways to do it.

If you try to cherry-pick "on top" of what you already have, you most
probably will get conflicts you will have to manually solve.
