      which are good debuggers used in NetBSD kernel debugging.....? Is
  all gdb options available in NetBSD..?
  I read about kgdb is it available on netbsd..? can i use ipkgdb for
  this purpose..?As i am doing netbsd porting how can i debugg processor

ipkdb seems to have bitrotted.  it probably needs some work to
be useful.  kgdb might be your best choice, if you have a serial
port.  it usually requires the least amount of debugger code
written for that platform.  there's also the builtin kernel
debugger ddb(4).

i've never written debugger support for a new machine so i
don't reall know much more than the above...
