As far as "git diff [--cached]" (which is "compare HEAD with the
working tree through index") is concerned, these paths are in the
"U"nmerged category, so you'd give "U" to diff-filter to view them.
Of course, that would give you other kinds of unmerged entries.

If you know they show up as DU, why not "grep DU" in that output?
