This is one of the things that bugs me about just using one file...
I have spent a lot of time working with systems that boot from flash
or from the network. I don't want to load a full netbsd.gdb that way.
I'd rather have two files around. I like what I think Andrew suggested
of having a file with some minimal debug information that you could boot
=66rom and which could be used for more extensive in-kernel debugging.
Having a full netbsd.gdb and better two-machine debugging support would
be really nice, too--I did a little two-machine debugging of a the OS X
equivalent of an LKM in my previous job, and it was quite handy.
