Right, this is only about the submit path.  I wasn't thinking
about rebase when I worked on this code (or read your message
about rebase ORIG_HEAD).

The backtraces are not pretty, and should be fixed.  I confess I
never use git p4 rebase, because it should be only git p4 sync +
git rebase @{u}.  There's no conflict handling at all in the git
p4 code.

This patch series tries to fix the conflict handling in the
submit path only.  Have to start somewhere.

What do you think we might do about the rebase path?  It feels
like a situation that belongs to native git.  Are there
p4-specific things like $Id$ tags that need help?  We could
just catch the errors from git rebase more gracefully, or exec
directly into git rebase.
