Hi Jörn,

Like you, I do get the joke: but in this case as in others, I took the view
that the needs of those whose first language was not English should prevail.
(Yes, I also know about the convention that the kernel is defined to be in
English.)

And, being not yet of even janitor status (:-)) myself, I did not submit the
patch: I guess whoever does that has the final call!

Cheers, Shaheed
