Subject[PATCH] Typos in Documation/kbuild/modules.txt 2.6.15-rc2
From: Kristian Edlund <edlund@groenstue.dk>

I found a few typos, in Documentation/kbuild/modules.txt
I also changes the $PWD to `pwd` for consistency throughout the document.

Signed-off-by: Kristian Edlund <edlund@groenstue.dk>

I am not sure this is the right place to post, but now I am trying
anyway. If I am completly wrong and changes to documentation should not
be sent here, could please help me a bit with where I should send it.
