Implement NetGDB(4)
NetGDB(4) is a component of a system using a panic-time network stack to remotely debug crashed FreeBSD kernels over the network, instead of traditional serial interfaces. There are three pieces in the complete NetGDB system. First, a dedicated proxy server must be running to accept connections from both NetGDB and gdb(1), and pass bidirectional traffic between the two protocols. Second, the NetGDB client is activated much like ordinary 'gdb' and similarly to 'netdump' in ddb(4) after a panic. Like other debugnet(4) clients (netdump(4)), the network interface on the route to the proxy server must be online and support debugnet(4). Finally, the remote (k)gdb(1) uses 'target remote <proxy>:<port>' (like any other TCP remote) to connect to the proxy server. The NetGDB v1 protocol speaks the literal GDB remote serial protocol, and uses a 1:1 relationship between GDB packets and sequences of debugnet packets (fragmented by MTU). There is no encryption utilized to keep debugging sessions private, so this is only appropriate for local segments or trusted networks.
