I've recently been improving some GCC-based static analysis in Gnulib, and syncing from Gnulib to diffutils meant that you have a bit of a work-in-progress there. I plan to make further such changes soon.

The Gnulib work already installed is conservative and I see no harm in releasing what we've got in diffutils now. I'm sending this email mainly to give you a heads-up that more Gnulib changes are coming.

FWIW attached are the diffutils patches I have so far. They assume the abovementioned Gnulib work-in-progress and this should not be installed in diffutils yet. Most likely more minor diffutils patches will be needed once I've finished the Gnulib changes I have in mind.

Until today I've been using the Gnulib work-in-progress on grep rather than on diffutils. I've found one memory leak there and hope to find more bugs - after all, that's the point of all this. I didn't find any diffutils bugs in my brief run-through today.
