#45026 closed enhancement (fixed)

Replace incorrect usage of `'who's` with `whose`

There are various places inside the code where who's is used as a relative pronoun. Seems like a typo, where whose should be used instead.

Docs: Replace incorrect usage of "who's" with "whose".

Whom can say who's "whose" is who's? Is it a Who that Horton heard? Maybe it's The Who whose "who" knowledge will hook whomever hoots "who's" instead of "whose".

Hoot. Hoot.

Props Hafiz.
Fixes #45026.
