How do you handle conflicts in such a situation?

For example, I get:

	-> git rebase master testing-NAND
	patching file common/cmd_nand.c
	Hunk #2 FAILED at 18.
	Hunk #3 succeeded at 335 (offset 1 line).
	1 out of 4 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file common/cmd_nand.c.rej
	external diff died, stopping at common/cmd_nand.c.
	Some commits could not be rebased, check by hand:

OK, I can edit the file to resolve the conflicts. But what  do  I  do
then to continue?

Best regards,
