The code lives on ppcoea-renovation branch for now:

  $ cvs -d co -r ppcoea-renovation src

and can be activated by the "options KGDB" statement in kernel
configuration file (sys/arch/evbppc/conf/VIRTEX_*).

It should work fine with any supported design (GSRD1, GSRD2 from; and DFC's demo design -- I'll look at putting
precompiled bitstreams somewhere online). Testing procedure can be
seen at:
