i think it's useful to fix typos in those things, but this would def
require a human to review things. it might also be saner to start
with a whitelist of common typos (doesnt checkpatch have this ?)
rather than doing it against a dictionary.

for example, we've committed a few drivers that used "platfrom" in
their structure names when it should have been "platform".
