Description Thiébaud Weksteen 2012-06-29 02:19:06 EDT
Description of problem:

In the kexec_load(2) man page, a typo exists in the last paragraph:
"...can be set to inform the kernel that the  memory memory  image...".
The word memory should only appear once.

Also, the official documentation already included a (more precise) man
page for this syscall. According to the .spec, the current version of
this page is extracted from man-pages-additional-20101006.tar.bz2. Maybe
this page should be removed from the additional package.

How reproducible:

Read the kexec_load(2) man page

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man kexec_load
