If you want to pull out just do so. However, if you need an excuse
please try to use facts and not vapour: we do have a kernel debugger
for instance. It's called KDB and has been around for quite a while,
you just have to download it and patch your kernel for it (which is
not an unreasonable request if you are working on the kernel in the
first place).
