I have been trying to patch a kernel variable in /netbsd (si_options) with
gdb, to no avail. I finally found my problem: if you start gdb normally,
and "set write on", it doesn't work. However, if you start gdb with
"-write" on the command line, it does work. Now I feel much less stupid;
like Han Solo, "it's not my fault!"
