git reset --hard 
will remove all your modifications to that branch that are not checked in yet. You might
want to save include/resall.h elsewhere if you still need your modifications.

git checkout master

will check out the master branch. You might need to "git pull" after you checked
out the master so that you are up-to-date with the gromacs repository.
