Fix typos in /Documentation : 'U-Z'
This patch fixes typos in various Documentation txts. The patch addresses some +words starting with the letters 'U-Z'. Looks like I made it through the alphabet...just in time to start over again +too! Maybe I can fit more profound fixes into the next round...? Time will +tell. :) Signed-off-by: Matt LaPlante <kernel1@cyberdogtech.com> Acked-by: Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net> Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de>
