[bug-diffutils] Multithreading support?

Using cmp on a lower grade CPU (AMD N36L) it became apparent, that cmp
is singlethreaded and it would benefit from multithreading, as it was
CPU limited when comparing content from two different hard drives.

Was this ever considered?

The same hold for diff and other tools too, I guess.

(I was using cmp from diff-utils 3.2, precompiled binary as part of
the SystemRescueCd v3.7.1 live CD/USB)
