Sorry, I should learn to be less obtuse.

What *was* happening was that the "target remote /dev/tty00" command
worked, getting me to the place in kgdb_machdep.c. If I then said "cont",
and later hit ctrl-C, the gdb would wait "forever" (until I hit ctrl-C
again and disconnected), but the target would continue working.

However, I just rebooted again, and now it's working as advertised (no idea
why it failed before - I haven't changed anything). This is *really* cool
(now I'll just have to see if xxgdb or something similar is worth using).
