I you push your second patch, IIRC because I did it once or twice,
you'll get the first one pushed again to Gerrit as a new patchset.

When I have dependencies like that, and I know it beforehand, I try to
prepare my two commits locally and then push them at once to Gerrit.

Apart from the "ugliness" of pushing again the same first patch, there's
nothing bad that could result from your dependency.
