There is a way, provided you never have commits of your own on top.

git fetch origin HEAD
git reset --hard FETCH_HEAD

BTW, I've just pushed a 4.6.0-beta1-patched branch, if anyone is interested in 
it. It was very easy to create:
  git checkout -b 4.6.0-beta1-patched 4.6-stable-patched
  git merge v4.6.0-beta1
  git push kde-qt 4.6.0-beta1-patched
