this is -v7 of the KGDB-light tree, which can be pulled from:

  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mingo/linux-2.6-kgdb.git

Find the shortlog, the diffstat and the combo patch below.

Changes since -v6: lots of cleanups all around the place, based on the 
review feedback from:

  - Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz
  - Sam Ravnborg
  - Linus Torvalds
  - Christoph Hellwig
  - Marcin Slusarz
  - Thomas Gleixner

memory handling is a lot cleaner, the include files and Kconfig have 
been further cleaned up, and the code flow in kernel/kgdb.c has been 
cleaned up as well - and a zillion of other small details.

thanks guys!

It builds/boots/works on 32-bit and 64-bit x86 as well, and it passed 
allnoconfig, allyesconfig and allmodconfig tests.

	Ingo
