I think you want
$ git checkout --ours .
$ git add -u
$ git commit
"The trick" is that `git checkout` working on files, and not given a
<tree-ish> argument to take contents from, uses the index, and for
unmerged entries, the index stores two versions of the entry's
content: theirs and ours.
You might also use `git checkout --ours` on individual files, of course.
