Want ctfwsdiff to diff workspaces for CTF
Having written an ad-hoc tool a few different times to do this, I thought it'd be useful to add a wsdiff like tool that uses ctfdump -c to look at the difference between two workspaces for CTF and reports on what's changed between files. While a little simple, this helps give us confidence that changes in the ctf tooling haven't caused changes in the existing gate (or have caused ones that we expect).

To test the change in the referenced Gerrit review, I ran the old and new wsdiff to compare a DEBUG and non-DEBUG workspace and compared their results.The same differences were identified by both versions.
I then made a small change to the source - added a new element to the
struct metaslab struct - and built again, then used the new version to compare the old and new non-DEBUG workspaces.
The updated tool showed the differences in the SUNW_ctf sections of affected objects, as expected.
I also tested with unified diff output.
