yumdownloader --source kernel # assumes you've enabled source repos
rpm -K kernel*src.rpm  # optional, except for the paranoid among us
rpm -ivh kernel*.src.rpm
cd /where/kernel-2.6.spec/is # ~/redhat/kernel for me (not default)
rpmbuild -bp --target $(arch) kernel-2.6.spec
cd /path/to/build/dir # ~/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.17   ^^^^^^^^^^^
diff -uNr vanilla/drivers/net/wireless/bcm43xx/ linux-2.6.17.i686/drivers/net/wireless/bcm43xx/

The current fedora kernel is based on 2.6.17.8 IIRC, so if you want to
diff it against the current 2.6.17.11, you'd have to grab the upstream
kernel source as well.

There was no unicode in the diff I saw. :)

And it's a very tiny diff as well.
