I've just got lucky and found this little typo under "Power management

hArdware Error Device

Here is my fix:
Hardware Error Device

BTW, first time I've used nconfig instead of menuconfig. And I like it.

probably should create a patch, and send it to trivial@xxxxxxxxxx

Sure, but I don't know which script generates that part of config and
... how to do the patch :| (Sorry, I'm not even a greenhorn on the
programming field).
Just cc-eding trivial@xxxxxxxxxx for now ..

That's alright.. I'm still a newbie over here...

read Documentation/SubmittingPatches

there the instructions on how to create a perfect patch is there.
then when done make sure you use scripts/checkpatch to check you patch then when all good use scripts/ to find the appropriate people to send it too.

and voila you'll be sending patches to the kernel like there's no tomorrow...
