Git Merge previous commit
So I think I have a simple thing I want to do. I have 2 branches. In "master" I want to merge branch "feature", but I don't want the latest change from "feature".
Sorry I don't know how to diagram it, but my master head (M2) should get all changes up to F1 and essentially, it should be equivalent to:
So How do I do this merge so that the master branch doesn't pick up the latest F2 commit?
EDIT: Background on the issue.
I have a master branch and started a feature branch. Then I made a change (A) in the feature branch that should have been in the master branch. Then I made a change (B) in the feature branch (which belongs there). I would have liked change (A) to be in master, feature branch to branch from there, and change (B) to remain in the feature branch.
In the future, the feature branch may pick up changes from master. Then, when the feature is done, it will merge back into master and that branch can be deleted.

As I understand it, Git figures out the current state of a repository by tracing back the changes from the current HEAD through its parents to the root. Merge commits have two parents, like C6 here:
