I think it's OK to create it in the same branch with previous one, especially in this case when patches touch same file
and there is a non-zero probability of conflict because of order change.

While patch #2 will have #1 shown in Gerrit as a "dependency", they still can be integrated separately from each other (if #2 does actually apply to the branch without #1).
