SubjectRe: kallsyms 2.6.8 address ordering

What would be required? Source code disclosure to a reviewer. MDB is platform independent. and patches in an alternate debugger interface in kdb_main. In includes **NONE** of SGI's source code or Linux kernel source in the MDB core. There is an open source section of the debugger with **ALL** modifications to kdb core files disclosed with the debugger modules. The fact is, I don't even need kdb, but inlcuded it in a mode where folks who wanted to switch between the two debuggers could do so, since a lot of folks wanted to. I do use the serial interface in kdb, which is the only portion. I wrote MANOS with this debugger, and all the low level GDT, IDT, etc. hardware stuff is my own, is vastly superior to what's in kdb.

DRDOS owns the MDB debugger for Linux now and I maintain it for them -- that's it. I am certain DRDOS would provide any counter-claims with **FACTS** to assertions we are using any of the kdb code improperly.
