FreeBSD and GDB

This talk will focus on FreeBSD-specific details the gdb debugger in the devel/gdb port.

In the past year, several changes have been added to devel/gdb (many of them upstreamed) including support for fork following and a new thread target. In addition, the kgdb kernel debugger has been ported to GDB 7.x including support for cross-debugging crashdumps. The talk will cover both the use of these recent changes as well as how they were implemented.
