In the past, git cherry-pick would print such advice when
there was a conflict:

hint: after resolving the conflicts, mark the corrected paths
hint: with 'git add <paths>' or 'git rm <paths>'
hint: and commit the result with 'git commit'

But in fact, when we want to cherry-pick multiple commits,
we should not use "git commit" after resolving conflicts, which
will make Git generate some errors. We should recommend users to
use `git cherry-pick --continue`, `git cherry-pick --abort`, just
like git rebase does.

This is the improved advice:

hint: Resolve all conflicts manually, mark them as resolved with
hint: "git add/rm <conflicted_files>", then run "git cherry-pick \
--continue".
hint: You can instead skip this commit: run "git cherry-pick --skip".
hint: To abort and get back to the state before "git cherry-pick",
hint: run "git cherry-pick --abort".
