Yes.  External tools like kdiff3 may not understand the conflict in
the working tree, but the files in the working tree should have
resolved the naturally resolvable bits and only left the conflicted
bits conflicted.  Just resolve manually if you can, and then look at
what both branches wanted to do to the file ("git log -p --merge
$that_path" before you "git add" as the final sanity check would
work nicely) to make sure your resolution makes sense.
