A small patch for the Hurd Reference Manual

My name is Joshua Branson, and I've recently made some small changes to the hurd reference manual in hurd/doc/hurd.texi. My changes in patch.diff are as follows:

    1) I made a tiny grammatical fix.
2) I changed the "don't get any funny ideas" to be more specific to the reader. 3) I improved the section on shutdown to use the commands reboot or halt. I found this information in the hurd-users-guide. 4) I removed the line explaining that the hurd uses Cthreads, and instead said that the hurd uses pthreads.

This might be a significant enough change to require me assigning copyright to the FSF. I was not paid by my employer to make these changes, and I might continue to make some tiny changes to the hurd documentation in the future, time permitting.

The FSF does not have my signed copyright on file. I found this link explaining how to assign copyright to the FSF: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/why-assign.html It says that I should ask one of the maintainers of the software to assist me in assigning copyright.

Would someone assist me in assigning copyright to the FSF? Should I send one of the files found here?

    Thanks for the help!
