Let's have this fixed upstream instead.  I'm CC'ing this to
address@hidden so that they can fix it.

POSIX uses "file system" (two words), and the GNU coding standards
prefer "file name" to "filename", so I think the change is a good one
for consistency.

        * doc/make-stds.texi: Bump copyright year.
        (Command Variables, Directory Variables): Fix spelling
        `filesystem' -> `file system'.
