Vimdiff or vim plugin to easily merge foo.c and foo.c.rej

Can someone recommend a method to merge foo.c and foo.c.rej easily within vim?  The .rej file shows diffs with the - and + sign so the plugin would allow one to split-screen the two, line them up automatically, then easily grab the blocks inserting or deleting them as they should be as if manually typed.  Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Vimdiff or vim plugin to easily merge foo.c and foo.c.rej

'patch --merge ...' changes foo.c to a file with merge conflicts (blocks between <<<<<<<, ||||||| and >>>>>>>), similar to what you see when merging files in git. That format may be more compatible with vim/nvim plugins out there. At least that format is more readable. You may not even need a plugin then.

Or put all the source files in a local git repo and apply the patch file with 'git apply'. Then optionally run 'git mergetool' or a plugin for a more visual diff.
