Applied to plain 2.5.59, diffstat reports this for the 871-line diff:
63 files changed, 77 insertions(+), 77 deletions(-)


find . -name "*" | xargs grep -l definat | awk '{print "ex - ",$1," -c \"%s/definat/definit/g|x\""}' | sh
find . -name "*" | xargs grep -l seperat | awk '{print "ex - ",$1," -c \"%s/seperat/separat/g|x\""}' | sh
