I forked kdb earlier this year to create a project to merge kdb to the mainline kernel. The idea was to make kdb a bit more generic and hook it up to the debug core (which is used by kgdb). It even goes a step further to integrate such that you can change graphics modes and works on a number of architectures at the expense of reducing the original kdb feature set. The kdb prototype 9 implementation is going to be published very soon. I was still working with Jesse Barnes to stabilize the KMS (Kernel Mode Setting) code in the 2.6.32 development kernel. The target for prototype 10 is to post it to LKML. The main sticking point so far has been the usb keyboard logic, which I have completely separated out in the patch series because it might not get merged in the first pass. For more details about what I am talking about see: http://kgdb.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page#Linux_Plumbers_Conference_presentation_2009 And then ask questions if you have any. Cheers, Jason.
