RE: symbolic debug of loadable modules with kgdb light
No. Their Kgdb light is the modification for Linux kernel. It is already
integrated in Linux kernel since 2.6.26. When you run gdb of Fedora 8, for
example, against kgdb light enabled kernel, you can't refer the symbols in
loadable modules. You also can't break in to kernel if your target is far
away from your reach. You have to physically type Ctrl+Alt+Sysrq and g. My
kgdb-light solves these problems. Let me know if you have any question.

About a year ago I saw the topic 'Kgdb Light' on KernelTrap . This
project on SF uses the modifications proposed there?
