KDB (Linux Kernel Debugger) has been updated.

ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/kdb/download/v4.4/
ftp://ftp.ocs.com.au/pub/mirrors/oss.sgi.com/projects/kdb...

Note:  Due to a spam attack, the kdb@oss.sgi.com mailing list is now
subscriber only.  If you reply to this mail, you may wish to trim
kdb@oss.sgi.com from the cc: list.

Current versions are :-

  kdb-v4.4-2.6.14-rc2-common-1.bz2
  kdb-v4.4-2.6.14-rc2-i386-1.bz2
  kdb-v4.4-2.6.14-rc2-ia64-1.bz2

The register display (rd, r) and register modify (rm) commands now work
for tasks that were running when MCA/INIT was delivered.

There is a small change in the behaviour of rd/rm after you use the
pid, btt, btp and btc commands.  I recommend that you read the rd and
bt man pages in Documentation/kdb, pay attention to KDB's notion of the
"current task" when working with registers.
