I didn't verify this, but I don't think so. Please look at pipe_open().
Perhaps it makes sense to serial_add_interface("ugdb"), I dunno.

OK. I was going to add some cleanups and send the new version today.
But after some testing (without gdb) I hit the kernel crashes. This
makes me think that probably something is wrong ;)

As usual, I can't blame my code. I am still investigating, the crash
