Well a feature or fix for a production branch should only land in
production branch generally except if it's come from the master and
can be applied cleanly. Most of the time it needs small changes to
work and is definitely not the same commit that we can have on the
master. (People that are actually editing a commit from master to be
applied on a production branch should die in hell ;) ) In short all
commits are atomic in their context.

So the problem doesn't exist in my mind when you apply the git workflow
