Hello, I would like to make my first contribution to the Linux kernel in the
form of a (trivial) spelling fix. Does this patch (including the subject and the
way my mail is being displayed), meet the requirements? Furthermore, I think the
correct place to send it to would be devicetree at and also CCing 
it to trivial at Is this all okay? Should I send it to somewhere else,
do I need to make any changes? Also I don't need to add a body to the patch
when I send it do I?

Here is my patch:
