I'd export them as patches and then apply them to the other tree to 
avoid confusing git with common but not really common ancestry. 
Something like this should do the trick:

   cd A/
   git-format-patch FA

It should spit out a .patch file for each commit since FA.  Then just 
apply them to B:

   cd ../B/
   git-am ../A/*.patch
