Apply the following spelling fixes:
$ git grep -F -l 'relevent' |
  xargs sed -i 's/relevent/relevant/g'
$ git grep -F -l 'checked fot' |
  xargs sed -i 's/checked fot/checked for/g'
$ git grep -F -l "could't" |
  xargs sed -i "s/could't/couldn't/g"
$ git grep -F -l 'wheter' | grep -Fv ChangeLog.old |
  xargs sed -i 's/wheter/whether/g'
$ git grep -F -l 'neccessary' | grep -Fv ChangeLog.old |
  xargs sed -i 's/neccessary/necessary/g'
$ git grep -F -l 'ouput' |
  xargs sed -i 's/ouput/output/g'
$ git grep -F -w -l 'iput' |
  xargs sed -i 's/iput/input/g'

This kind of patch is useful and welcome, but I want to warn anyone
who might be tempted to do something similar: after making global
mechanical search-and-replace changes like this, you must manually
review the diff and make sure you only changed text in comments, not
code, and not names in comments either.  It would not be appropriate,
for instance, to "correct" the name of the function "creat".

I agree.  While these spelling fixes look automatic, they were in fact
semi-automatic, and the script in the commit message was made afterwards
for better understanding, to save your time reviewing changes like this:
