    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.
