you want to play with
  git rebase -i
  git format-patch

fwiw, the suggested backporting workflow is quite a nightmare with git,
as all the merging goodies work only with forwardporting.
instead, you need to develop on master (the conventional name for the
trunk), branch for stabilization of each release, do *all* bugfixing in
the current stable branch and merge it back into master each time fixes
have been applied. major new features have to be developed on branches
of master, so they can be merged back into master. everything else
results in use of cherry-pick, format-patch and other commands for
branch merging and is just ugly.

if you need another workflow, git is just not for you. svn 1.5 (with
merge tracking) would serve the backporting model better. dunno whether
some other dvcs would work better.
