I thought I'd take part in the typo fixing frenzy :)

I have some other potential typos lines up. Right now the docs refer to both
'filesystem' and 'file system', as well as both 'testsuite' and 'test suite'. I
think words like these are generally split in English but I'm not sure.

There are also some words that I think look better with with a dash, e.g.
'trade-off'. Should I just send these as a patch too instead of jabbering on
about it?
