With a RELENG_6 from yesterday...

I have a regression that diff changed the return codes for an
internal case.  It used to give 1 but now gives 2.
( I'll try to generate a generic test case I can share. )

That makes error handling just a bit harder and breaks lot
of old stuff and relied on that.

Unfortunately the RETURN CODES section is gone from the
man page too.

Is there a known change?

PS: cmp still works as expected and documented in the man page.

Software is harder than hardware  so better get it right the first time.
