Subject: [PATCH] scripts/spelling.txt: drop "sepc" from the misspelling list
Date: Sat, 18 May 2019 14:00:38 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The RISC-V architecture has a register named the "Supervisor Exception
Program Counter", or "sepc".  This abbreviation triggers's misspelling detector, resulting in noise in the
checkpatch output.  The risk that this noise could cause more useful
warnings to be missed seems to outweigh the harm of an occasional
misspelling of "spec".  Thus drop the "sepc" entry from the
misspelling list.
