There are a great number of kgdb patches in the wild. You would help
us out a lot if you were to name the one you are using. If you are on
then 2.5 kernel I suggest you check out Andrew Morton's area and use

If you are using the one from source forge on a 2.4 kernel, there is a
mailing list for it that can be found at the same sourceforge site.
