Yes, give netbsd.gdb to gdb (that's what it is for!), but you have to make
sure both kernels are from the same build dir (and same build). The
installed /netbsd kernel is just a stripped version of the netbsd.gdb kernel
(which was the linkers output).

So after a make: install netbsd, start remote debug and use netbsd.gdb as
your gdb file.
