Build Linux kernel to have comparable zImages

Dear All,

Maybe somebody can point me to solution to the following problem:


I do want to be able to compare (with e.g. md5sum, sha1) two linux
zImages. The problem is that Linux compiles in current build time into
the binary. Hence, even two identical builds will have different hash.


I do want to do some considerable Kconfig rework and avoid situation
where some option would be left not enabled.

Best regards,

Lukasz Majewski
