my experience showed that it leads to conflicts if you first patch 
master and than try to apply a patch to older branch. The other way it 
works quite well.

The merge didn't worked for me clean, so i fif it like this:
- patched 4_5 first in a branch
- committed
- created a diff file
- checkout a new master branch
- apply diff to this branch
- commit

maybe a bit complicate, but i wait for better practise to do so.
The problem is that i have to duplicate the commit message, while a 
merge would take the same commit message.
