Subject[PATCH] 2.5.61 yet more pedantry: complement vs compliment.
From
Date
A compliment is an expression of esteem, respect, affection, or
admiration. As far as I can tell, this word does not yet have a
place in the kernel source.

A complement on the other hand, is what is meant in the following
places. Diffed against 2.5.61 up through cset 1.1043.
