At some time I lost control of my firmwares, too and had the thought to add more information
into the version string thats printed on startup.
Just the list of modules and some important
flags used for config. e.g. (branch asdf, commit 123456789, spi,xxx,yyy, integer).
You can use "strings" on the firmware to find out that identification string.
