You probably should read main documentation about GIT then. What we have
on wiki is small pieces of information for people who some-what knows GIT.

What this tells you is that you have modified dlls/user32/tests/menu.c
file. And you either have to commit it, or discard the changes. If you
have your modifications in the GIT tree - commit them! If you don't care
about any changes in your tree, do 'git checkout -f'.
'git reset HEAD^' does something _completely_ different from what you
want. It "undoes" the last commit without modifying the source. You
should only use it to edit your own patches that you just committed.
Anyway in short if you just want step-by-step:
git commit -a -m junk
git rebase origin
git reset HEAD^
This will preserve *all* changes made in the tree. Of course if anything
will conflict, you'll have to resolve conflicts yourself.
