That's what happens when there are merge conflicts: Git suspends the
merge in its middle.

Commit everything in one go, with "git commit", and give it a single
log entry, something like "resolve merge conflicts".

You _must_ commit.  A successful merge in Git always ends in a commit,
and in this case you need to do it manually, because the automatic
merge failed due to diverging.
