 Just as a side note, you can probably reduce the count of difference
occurances by compiling the kernel with some additional build-time options.
E.g I use those (to conserve some disk space):

-fno-bin-amdil -fno-bin-llvmir -fno-bin-source

This is effectively stripping the binary of some sections that would not be
needed anyway. Of course, parsing the ELF file to get the text section
would be the best as it will give you exactly the differences you need.
