I think it was misunderstood the goal of the patch.
The same exact paragraph, about process priorities, is duplicated in 2 places:

https://github.com/erlang/otp/blob/dev/erts/doc/src/erlang.xml#L3660

and

https://github.com/erlang/otp/blob/dev/erts/doc/src/erlang.xml#L3707

The first one makes sense, as it's under the section describing
process_flag(priority, Level). The second one however seems like a
copy paste accident because it's under the section describing
process_flag(save_calls, N).
