The best thing to do is to define a module with the same name as dir2. 
For example, add to the CVSROOT/modules files:

        dir2    dir1/dir2

That allows people to checkout dir2 as though it were a top-level
directory without actually changing the physical structure of the
repository (which would screw up anyone who already has it checked out).
