Correcting typos in comments is definitely valuable :) They
should just go in a separate patch so as not to detract from
the other changes during a review. In addition, if the
substantive changes introduced in the patch turn out to be
incorrect after the patch has been applied and need to be
reverted it would be nice not to have to back out the good
fixes for the typos as well.
