For reproducible builds, we want to find out if there are any differences
between two builds having the same configuration, and to find the reason behind
them. The diffoscope tool looks inside different types of files to see where the
differences lie.

check_reproducibility() runs diffoscope on two output directories which are
expected in output/images and output/images-1. Since it uses objdump, it needs
to be provided the cross-compile prefix which is derived from the TARGET_CROSS

Since diffoscope may not be installed, we fall back to cmp for byte-by-byte
comparison. We add diffoscope to list of optional programs to avoid repeated
checking of its presence.

Changes v4 -> v5:
  - Fix cmp fallback command

Changes v3 -> v4:
  - Removed spaces on empty lines (suggested by Yann)

Changes v2 -> v3:
  - Use file size of reproducible_results to check reproducibility status, rather than
    exit status of cmp or diff (suggested by arnout)
  - Rename results file (diffoscope_output.txt -> reproducible_results) to avoid confusion
  - Change handling of diffoscope output text file using with open()
  - Changed commit message to have all necessary info (suggested by arnout)
  - Removed leftover code from when I was using an exception to handle
    diffoscope presense (thanks to arnout)

Changes v1 -> v2:
  - move diffoscope output to results dir (suggested by arnout)
  - fix make printvars call
  - Add diffoscope to DEFAULT_OPTIONAL_PROGS
