Re: [PATCH] Spelling fix :=)

You're right, my spellchecker doesn't like "filesystem" either. And neither
does dictionary.com. Google?

http://www.google.com/search?q=filesystem -> 520,000 pages
http://www.google.com/search?q=%22file%20system%22 -> 1,090,000 pages

Hmm, maybe I am in the minority after all. Well, the fact that "filesystem"
has been used probably millions of times on all those pages means it's about
as close to a real word as you can get. I wouldn't worry about it :)
