I don´t know if it fits topgit, but this is what Junio uses:
Basically he creates a new feature branch that is the merge of the
conflicting branches (it works for both semantically and explicit
conficts), and there he resolves the conficts. Then if one of the
branches are merged in master (in you case a patch is created) then
the other branch fast-forward to the merge.
