In dcb500dc16c (cherry-pick/revert: advise using --skip, 2019-07-02), we introduced a helpful message that suggests to run git cherry-pick --skip (instead of the previous message that talked about git reset) when a cherry-pick failed due to an empty patch.
However, the same message is displayed during a rebase, when the patch to-be-committed is empty. In this case, git reset would also have worked, but git cherry-pick --skip does not work. This is a regression introduced in this cycle. Let's be more careful here.
