...or if you wanted to pick most of the changes from a commit or
branch, but reject individual files:

   git cherry-pick <commit> --no-commit
   - or -
   git merge <branch> --no-commit

then (probably after git status):

   git checkout HEAD -- <list of paths>

to discard the changes to these files. Then git commit to store your
partial merge/cherry-pick.
