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'.

Documentation/git-commit.txt

 --------
 When recording your own work, the contents of modified files in
 your working tree are temporarily stored to a staging area
-called the "index" with gitlink:git-add[1].  Removal
-of a file is staged with gitlink:git-rm[1].  After building the
-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
+the state to be committed incrementally with these commands,
+`git commit` (without any pathname parameter) is used to record what
 has been staged so far.  This is the most basic form of the
 command.  An example:
 
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
