Patch (Revision 1)

On line 283 in sys/x86/x86/tsc.c, I saw the following comment:

 * User did not give the order about calibration.
 * If he did, we do not try to guess.

We can't assume all FreeBSD users are male. They could be female, non-binary, etc. I have a patch which changes the comment to:

 * User did not give the order about calibration.
 * If they did, we do not try to guess.

We're not individually patching every single instance of pronouns in comments.
