Subject[PATCH 3.16 19/86] locking/static_keys: Fix up the static keys documentation
3.16.68-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

commit 1975dbc276c6ab62230cf4f9df5ddc9ff0e0e473 upstream.

Fix a few small mistakes in the static key documentation and
delete an unneeded sentence.
