Subject: Sparse improvements & regressions for Linux v5.7-rc1 -> v5.8-rc1

I've finally written a silly script to easily compare my tests
of Sparse on the kernel. So, it's now easy to share those results.

It's a comparison of Sparse's unique warnings between v5.7-rc1 &
v5.8-rc1 on x86-64 (defconfig + allyesconfig). The results are
quite similar on other architectures.

Note that the differences can be caused by changes in the kernel
code or in Sparse code.

Have fun.
