replace reference to git-rm with git-reset in git-commit doc

The message in git-commit suggesting to use 'git rm --cached'
to unstage is just plain wrong. It really should mention 'git reset'.

 When recording your own work, the contents of modified files in
 your working tree are temporarily stored to a staging area

-state to be committed incrementally with these commands, `git
-commit` (without any pathname parameter) is used to record what
+called the "index" with gitlink:git-add[1].  A file can be
+reverted back, only in the index but not in the working tree,
+to that of the last commit with `git-reset HEAD -- <file>`,
+which effectively reverts `git-add` and prevents the changes to
+this file from participating in the next commit.  After building

 has been staged so far.  This is the most basic form of the
 command.  An example:
