If the file wasn't built, the warning cannot be in the log ;-)
So yes, it works best for full builds, only flagging warnings that
(dis)appeared (and ignoring changes due to changed line numbers!).

If you do lots of incremental builds, you want to append the last incremental
log to the existing full log before doing a new build, to avoid false positives
from files that weren't built in the previous run:

$ cat new.log >> old.log
$ make ... > new.log
$ linux-log-diff old.log new.log

And only new warnings should be reported.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
