Jeremy, I redid my git-bisect from scratch and came up with a different
commit for the gdb breakage:

commit f95d47caae5302a63d92be9a0292abc90e2a14e1
Author: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <>
Date: Thu Dec 7 02:14:02 2006 +0100
[PATCH] i386: Use %gs as the PDA base-segment in the kernel

This commit is the one which causes gdb to halt with this error
no matter what executable I try to run:
Cannot insert breakpoint -2.
Error accessing memory address 0xd74b: Input/output error.

I tried to git-revert just this one commit, but I get merge conflicts
I don't how to resolve.

BTW, I just discovered tons of kernel debugging config options which
were turned off -- I just turned several of them on. Maybe I can give
you better info now.
