Generate patch and apply to branch with different commit history

Generate patches for local commits from origin/1.x

$ git format-patch -k -o ~/patches_dir/ origin/1.x

Check if a forced update is pending

$ git fetch --dry-run
remote: Enumerating objects: 26, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (26/26), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (15/15), done.

 + 1ec508d...c046c5f 1.x        -> origin/1.x  (forced update)

Update local branch when we know there is going to be a forced update

$ git checkout master # Needs to be performed before doing fetch
$ git fetch
$ git branch -D 1.x
$ git checkout -b mybranch-1.x origin/1.x

Apply patches to branch

$ cat ~/patches_dir/* | git am -k

Script to automate fetching and re-applying patches

# Generate patches
# git format-patch -k -o "$patchdir" origin/$remotebranch
( cd $repodir
  # Apply patches
  git checkout master # Needs to be run before fetch
  git branch -D $localbranch-old
  git branch -m $localbranch $localbranch-old
  git fetch
  git checkout -b $localbranch origin/$remotebranch
  cat "$patchdir"/*.patch | git am -k
