Yes. I would say that a merge is the correct thing to do here anyway
in terms of process policy. It seems better to track the fix being merged
to each customer-specific branch (is there ever more than one customer
branch involved in your case?), rather than having two independent
non-merge commits that happen to fix the same problem.
