kgdb. Tried kdb and (sorry, Keith), it's not in the same
league. Not by miles.

General answer to this is to go for a foray in
http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/

Which turns up
http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.7/kgdb.patch

I have done it both ways, extensively, for long periods.
The printk method is comically inefficient. The amount
of transparency whch kgdb gives to kernel internals is
extraordinary.
