The spelling correction is good, but the format of the patch is almost
upside down. The patch description should be first, then the Signed-off-by:
line, and then the patch is last.

And then you need to send it to someone specific who can merge it.
This one should probably be sent: Jiri Kosina <trivial@xxxxxxxxxx>
(unless he wants to take it now).

with a Subject line of something like:
[PATCH trivial] Fix a typo in Documentation/sysctl/vm.txt
