The one shown in the manual:


cvs up -j1.2 -j1.1 file

(Note that revision numbers identify results, not changes; changes are
what happen *between* revision numbers.  From the above, I'm guessing
that it's the changes from 1.1 to 1.2 that you want to undo; if not,
you'll have to revise the above command appropriately.)
