Thanks, applied with couple of exceptions:

This is an identical copy of linux/nl80211.h from the kernel tree, so
spelling fixes would be overwritten whenever a new update is made. If
you want to get this parts fixed, the patch will need to be against the
kernel tree (wireless-testing.git)..

This changes spelling of a word in the SSLeay license. I do not find it
acceptable to change that. The particular sentence is actually even
explicitly disallowing changes to the license.. ;-)  (In addition,
"publically" seems to be acceptable spelling while "publicly" is much
more common.)

There were couple of other files that were from external sources and the
more appropriate location for spelling fixes would be in the upstream
projects. Anyway, I ended up taking these changes after some
