This is alpha code. It has had minimal testing with a small set of
config options. In particular it has not been tested with
CONFIG_PREEMPT. It only works on vanilla ia64 boxes using serial
console and PC keyboard/VT. Patches to port the kdb USB console
support from 2.4 to 2.6 will be gratefuly accepted.

These 2.6.0-test11 patches must be applied in this order, against
2.6.0-test11 plus David Mosberger's linux-2.6.0-test11-ia64-031126

kdb-v4.3-2.6.0-test11-salinfo.bz2 (brings salinfo processing up to 2.4.23)
kdb-v4.3-2.6.0-test11-xfsidbg.bz2 (corrects out of date XFS debug code)

This is a clone from kdb v4.3-2.4.23, with changes from several people
for 2.6, thanks to Xavier Bru and Jim Houston for 2.6 changes to kdb.
Changelog extracts from 2.4.23.
