Hi,

with jdk7 b11 and jdk7 b12, every file has a diff to its previous version due to a changed copyright section on top of the file.

A diff looks like:

p4 diff -du //bas2/j2se/17/hotspot/src/share/vm/utilities/top.hpp
==== //bas2/j2se/17/hotspot/src/share/vm/utilities/top.hpp#3 - /usr/sap/BUILD/d034648/p4/bas2/j2se/17/hotspot/src/share/vm/utilities/top.hpp ====

#endif

These diffs make it really hard to see the real changes within > 19000 changed files.
