Err, right. It should be remote gdb, attaching a serial line to your
console and remotely debug the kernel from a second machine.
There seams to be support for this in 2.1 kernels, but not 2.0 kernels.

Yes, there seams to be support for dumping a thread, but not dump
the whole kernel.

We are probably talking around eachother, but with with kgdb i mean
gdb -k /dev/{,k}mem so you can look at variables inside the kernel.

Hacking in new features, and fixing problems are fun, but there is not
time enough for doing everything. Porting the code from *BSD to linux
and back is not a real problem, if you know that the diffrences are
from the begining.
