In that case the patchset would be (I sent them 10/11/2011 02:18 PM):

+ 0001-apbuart-add-polling-callbacks-to-apbuart-driver.patch
+ 0002-apbuart-add-support-for-virtual-KGDB-GRMON-channel.patch
+ 0004-sparc32-return-destination-pointer-on-return-from-me.patch
+ 0005-sparc32-Add-support-for-KGDB-with-SMP-for-leon-and-s.patch

and skip the "0003-kernel-debug-SPARC-KGDB-stub-strcpy-fix.patch"
