if you want to do the extra work, the change is the same and correctly
attributed (see git cherry-pick and git commit --author) then i see no
problem here

Note, its important that the change is the same and not "re created"
so that you help the people doing the next merge by reducing their work
(aka they can then just "skip" the commit when merging and dont need to
spend time analysing why the change is different)
If differences are neccessary they should be fully documented in the
commit message
