I`m not sure how this helps resolving merge conflicts, as it doesn`t only 
retain all changes from INT, but effectively nukes all changes from master 
branch and just takes INT branch file state as-is -- so you`re not 
"applying it in master", but deleting master changes altogether.

Doing this is dangerous, unless you really want to drop all master branch 
changes that happened since you branched your INT branch...

Am I missing something?

If this is exactly what you wanted to point out (dropping all master 
changes and taking INT file as-is), then let this be just an additional 
note of warning for those that might have missed it, as the original 
question seems concerned with solving something else - a real merge 
conflict situation, and this answer doesn`t seem to help there.
