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.
