If Alexandre has applied your patch, and in the middle of a rebase, you 
get a conflict with the version of the patch in your tree, it's often 
enough to do one of:

# preserve the diff in all.diff just in case
git diff-index -p HEAD > all.diff
patch -p1 -R < all.diff
git reset
git rebase --skip


# get rid of the diff from this tree
git reset --hard
git rebase --skip

both will skip the patch, and continue the rebase, the first one simply 
saves the diff just in case.

If you're not sure, you can check which files are uncommitted with:

git diff-index HEAD

As for the rebase options, the manual page is useful:
