Thanks for the sound advice.

Linus, as we are getting closer to the end of the merge window, here's a
patch (in my next e-mail) against your current tree removing many
occurrences of "the the " in the kernel source code. I hope you can
merge it at this stage. This way we will just have one commit in the
tree instead of many more if I had to go through multiple maintainers.

Thanks in advance,
