Well, IMO `git stash pop` merely told you it detected a conflict
when trying to apply what you've stashed.  Your work tree is now in
conflicting state, and the stash wasn't dropped.  All you have to do is
resolve the conflict by editing mm/Makefile and `git add`-ing it to the
index.  Use `git status` + `git diff` to verify your changes from the
stash entry actually landed into the work tree.

If you feel uneasy about "merging" the stashed change, create a branch
out of it (`git stash branch`) and merge those changes by merging the
new branch.
