My nit of the day ;-)

The above paragraphs seems to going against the following guideline of
Documentation/SubmittingPatches,

    Describe your changes in imperative mood, e.g. "make xyzzy do frotz"
    instead of "[This patch] makes xyzzy do frotz" or "[I] changed xyzzy
    to do frotz", as if you are giving orders to the codebase to change
    its behavior.  Try to make sure your explanation can be understood
