svn cp would be better here because that way svn knows the history of
the file and keeps track of the changes even before it was copied there.

I think in the past we have done something along the lines:
svn mv trunk/src/target/kernel/patches
branches/src/target/kernel/ &&
svn mv branches/src/target/kernel/2.6.24.x/patches

Maybe it would even make sense to just have the patches living
in /branches and not copy/move the current patchset to /trunk and back
