    Documentation: Use "while" instead of "whilst" · 806654a9
    Will Deacon authored
    Whilst making an unrelated change to some Documentation, Linus sayeth:
    
      | Afaik, even in Britain, "whilst" is unusual and considered more
      | formal, and "while" is the common word.
      |
      | [...]
      |
      | Can we just admit that we work with computers, and we don't need to
      | use þe eald Englisc spelling of words that most of the world never
      | uses?
    
    dictionary.com refers to the word as "Chiefly British", which is
    probably an undesirable attribute for technical documentation.
    
    Replace all occurrences under Documentation/ with "while".
