rc6-git9, I will update the patches.

ChangeLog, 09/07/2008

Cleaned up several hundred more messages.

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.

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
