If you merge with stop-before-commit and get some unexpected diffs, you
can fix them (usually by doing "git checkout" on the files with diff
from their master versions) and commit, and the diffs won't confuse
future merge results.

(I actually don't know if there is any point to making a commit of a zero
diff merge result...?)
