Generally the easiest way is to boot with a serial console.
(Enter "consdev com0" at the boot loader prompt
to switch to com0)
Alternatively, you could set a breakpoint at the appropriate place (do
you have symbols?), like aha_attach(), or perhaps the attach function
for the next driver subsequent.
Just boot with -d to start in the kernel debugger, and then
and hit 'c' to continue when you land there.
If Manuel's kernel isn't built with symbols, you'll have
to get the address of aha_attach from him.
