Subject[PATCH 5/8] ktest/config_bisect: Simplify bisect logic
Date
From: Scott Wood <oss@buserror.net>

There's no need to diff the configs three different ways or to do things
like "first lets enable things in bad config that are enabled in good
config". If "undefined" is treated as just another value that a config
can have, then all the cases reduce to "a problem with a difference in
values".

Plus, the old logic would fail with some inputs, as it confuses a symbol
not appearing in the .config file (and thus in the hash) with a symbol
not being selected (and thus being present in the hash with a value of "#
CONFIG_FOO is not set"). diff_configs checks for the former, but
assuming the input configs have been run through make oldconfig, any
symbols that are not present at all are not selectable and thus are side
effects of some other difference -- not relevant to the bisection.

If the bisection proceeds to the point where there are none of these
side effects left, len_b and len_g will both be zero. If len_diff is
greater than one at this point, a new config to try will not be produced.

Since b_arr and g_arr are irrelevant to the bisection, remove them and
only calculate differences in symbols that are present in both hashes, and
proceed directly to the logic that deals with differences in value.

While we're at it, have diff_config_vals return an array of keys rather
than a hash, since the keys are the only thing ever looked at.
