I see that you are trying to match the phrasing used in the other
side of this if/else (which is outside the context of the posted
patch).  Over there we say "... to conclude merge" while the new
text says "... to conclude THE merge".  Don't we want to match them?

For those who did not look beyond the context of the patch text, as
I had to look these up to convince myself that the proposed change
is a good one.  This function is only called when we see MERGE_HEAD,
so "unmerged" here can come only from a failed merge, not other
mergy operations like am, cherry-pick, revert, etc. and telling the
user that 'commit' will conclude the merge will not be misleading
(unless you count "'git commit' will conclude a conflicted 'git pull'"
as misleading, and I of course do not).
