Ah! I was using diff to illustrate the state of the two branches. The
actual way to do the merge is a git question.

Like all merges, start by switching to the branch to be merged to -
"master" in this case. Then merge from the whole "develop" branch if 85994
is the only difference. Otherwise, you need to merge just the 85994
changeset. (I'm a TortoiseGit user, so am the wrong person to ask about how
to do that from the command line. But "git help merge" from the command
line may well tell you enough to figure it out.)
