Diffconfig is a simple utility for comparing two configuration files.
See usage in the script for more info.

Borrowed from the Linux kernel source code and adapted to Buildroot.

+
+Diffconfig is a simple utility for comparing two .config files.
+Using standard diff to compare .config files often includes extraneous and
+distracting information.  This utility produces sorted output with only the
+changes in configuration values between the two files.
+
+Added and removed items are shown with a leading plus or minus, respectively.
+Changed items show the old and new values on a single line.
+
+If -m is specified, then output will be in "merge" style, which has the
+changed and new values in kernel config option format.
+
+If no config files are specified, .config and .config.old are used.
+
+Example usage:
+ $ diffconfig .config config-with-some-changes
+-LINUX_KERNEL_INTREE_DTS_NAME "vexpress-v2p-ca9"
+ LINUX_KERNEL_DTS_SUPPORT y -> n
+ LINUX_KERNEL_USE_INTREE_DTS y -> n
+ PACKAGE_DFU_UTIL n -> y
+ PACKAGE_LIBUSB n -> y
+ TARGET_GENERIC_HOSTNAME "buildroot" -> "Tuxie"
+ TARGET_GENERIC_ISSUE "Welcome to Buildroot" -> "Welcome to CustomBoard"
++PACKAGE_LIBUSB_COMPAT n
