Subject[ANNOUNCE] mdb: Merkey's Linux Kernel Debugger Release 2.6.27-rc6
From

I am tired of waiting for rc6, so if there are ground shaking changes over
rc6-git9, I will update the patches.

ChangeLog, 09/07/2008

Corrected dword, word, and byte dereference in the mdb-logic.c
documentation to match the disassembly display.

Changed oops_in_progress entry point to a counter variable to preserve
state when mdb is called from exceptions where it may have been previously
set.

Cleaned up several hundred more checkpatch.pl messages.

Cleanup error check cases in mdb-logic.c

back ported modularization, and use of notify_die handlers, sysrq handler
to previous Linux kernel mdb patch versions 2.6.18 up through 2.6.27-rc6.

removed dependencies on broken thread migration routines in reboot.c with
processor migration during reboot request. It's busted if multiple
processors are in the debugger.

TO-DO

x86_64 systems received, merge in process
IA64 systems slated for receipt in November for testing. code merge in
process with software simulator.
Nested TSS gates for X86 and X86_64 in process
