attached patch adds the compareboard utility, which compares a kbuildall
build's variables with those of an abuild build.

The previous version which I used so far only looked for existance of
variables (and had a bug for AMD boards, so some of them lack a bunch of
crucial values, sorry about that).
This version also tells you the values, but converts them from hex to
integer first. While this is not very helpful for vendor/device id pairs
and addresses, it helps because it eliminates "0xa" vs. "10" issues.

It hooks up to kbuildall, so just running it leads to abuild being
called (warning: large set of large trees around), and compares their
The results are dumped to stdout and stored as

Starting from these diffs, it should be easier to make board
configurations in kconfig more correct.
