sorry, I don't understand the purpose of this workflow. You do changes, commit 
them, then discard the commit by going back to origin/master and then commit 
those you *actually* wanted again by salvaging the files from your text 
editor? I probably misunderstood ;)

Anyways, if you want to restore the contents of the file to before the reset, 
they are still there:

git checkout HEAD@{1} -- <path/to/file>

That's why kate feels free to reload the file.
