    SubjectNetKGDB support.
    Date
    This is tentative patch set I am sending for feedback. It
    implements a network I/O backend for KDB/KGDB, the kernel
    debugger.

    Very similar to netconsole, on which it is based, but with
    a crucial difference - netkgdb is designed to accept connections
    from any hosts, i.e. it is not necessary to specify these ahead
    of time. This makes it that much more useful in a "this host crashed
    and a I want a developer to take a look at it" scenario, common to
    large scale test/QA farms and automated testing harnesses. This
    involves a minor change to the netpoll rx_hook, namely, to provide
    source connection information.

    [PATCH 1/2] NETPOLL: Extend rx_hook support.
    [PATCH 2/2] NETKGDB: Ethernet/UDP/IP KDB transport.

    Thanks,
    A
