I was going to ask about this in a separate email initially, but then
thought I'd use this email exchange instead, as my question is about
the code in question. Hope you don't mind.

If I'm reading this right, the intended behavoir of the block of code
below is to test file2 for existance, and if it exists, to evaluate $cmd.
If file1 and file2 are found to differ, print the warning.

test -f $file2 &&
eval $cmd || echo "Warning: Kernel ABI header at 'tools/$file'
differs from latest version at '$file'" >&2

The '||' path of execution is however also taken if file2 doesn't exist,
which is probably very unlikely to happen. See below.

% file1=file1; file2=file2
% cmd="echo diff $file1 $file2"
% test -f $file2 &&
eval $cmd || echo "Warning: Kernel ABI header at 'tools/$file1'
differs from latest version at '$file2'" >&2
Warning: Kernel ABI header at 'tools/file1' differs from latest
version at 'file2'

Is this something you would rather leave as is, or perhaps use something
along the lines of the code below instead:

test -f $file2 && {
eval $cmd ||
echo "Warning: Kernel ABI header at 'tools/$file' differs from latest
version at '$file'" >&2
}

Thanks.
