"Patched" is, shall we say, an understatement. :-)
however I do not want to debug natively (or my question here would be
pointless), I want to cross-debug using a Linux host.
So, uh, once you get the executable read in, how exactly do you expect
to remote-control execution from Linux-land? Is there a Darwin
GDBserver or equivalent that I don't know of? There is a kernel
debugging setup, but it's not useful for apps.
