scripts/spelling.txt: add "an user" pattern and fix typo instances
Fix typos and add the following to the scripts/spelling.txt: an user||a user an userspace||a userspace I also added "userspace" to the list since it is a common word in Linux. I found some instances for "an userfaultfd", but I did not add it to the list. I felt it is endless to find words that start with "user" such as "userland" etc., so must draw a line somewhere.
