Absolutely not true. You're probably thinking about kgdb, the gdb
stub for remote kernel source level debugging.

kdb is a dedicated low-level kernel debugger. It hasn't been
"hacked". It was never designed for user space. It doesn't do
source-level debugging, though --- it's very much a low-level
poke-around-the-kernel tool.
