In future, better use branches, so you can trim them when they're no longer needed.
You can do this now with:
git branch my-change
git reset --hard HEAD~3

After that you can git pull master and decide whether you want to git branch --delete my-change

Alternatively, you can also git pull --rebase && git reset --hard HEAD~3 or git reset --hard HEAD~3 && git pull
which removes those three commit without saving them to a branch first.

The git documentation on rebase doesn't seem to cover what I think the wireshark repository is doing.
