kernel debugging

Hi All.

Long time listner, first time caller.

I am working on a project to modify the Linux kernel
process scheduler & do some performance analysis.

I have performed this type of work before, but never with
available source code. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone
could suggest some resources for performing kernel debugging
& tracing.

I have already looked through I-don't-know-how-many (but I'm
sure not enough) HOW-TO's, etc. I've looked into KHG. I've
asked other people who know more about Linux. Nothing.

Since subscribing to this list, I've seen lots of patches, mods,
etc., and am wondering how these are being tested & debugged.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

BTW - I'm also subscribed to some other _supposed_ Linux / kernel
development newsgroups - all these people talk about (from getting
free cable TV, to patent disputes, to MS,...) never includes
anything relevant to my question.
