      scripts: objdiff: detect object code changes between two commits · 79192ca8
      Jason Cooper authored
      objdiff is useful when doing large code cleanups.  For example, when
      removing checkpatch warnings and errors from new drivers in the staging
      tree.
      
      objdiff can be used in conjunction with a git rebase to confirm that
      each commit made no changes to the resulting object code.  It has the
      same return values as diff(1).
      
      This was written specifically to support adding the skein and threefish
      cryto drivers to the staging tree.  I needed a programmatic way to
      confirm that commits changing >90% of the lines didn't inadvertently
      change the code.
      
      Temporary files (objdump output) are stored in
      
        /path/to/linux/.tmp_objdiff
      
      'make mrproper' will remove this directory.
