SubjectRe: [PATCH] Fixed typo in Documentation/x86/x86_64/5level-paging.rst
Date
Hello Jon, thanks a lot for your feedback, it was instructive. I attach changelog and the patch as plain text below. 

I fix two typos in the documentation (Documentation/x86/x86_64/5level-paging.rst), changing 'paing' for
'paging' and using the right verbal form for plural on 'some vendors offer'.

-Original x86-64 was limited by 4-level paing to 256 TiB of virtual address
+Original x86-64 was limited by 4-level paging to 256 TiB of virtual address
space and 64 TiB of physical address space. We are already bumping into
-this limit: some vendors offers servers with 64 TiB of memory today.

To overcome the limitation upcoming hardware will introduce support for
5-level paging. It is a straight-forward extension of the current page
