No I do mean kdb :) From the Documentation:

   <para>The kgdboc driver was originally an abbreviation meant to
   stand for "kgdb over console".  Today it is the primary mechanism
   to configure how to communicate from gdb to kgdb as well as the
   devices you want to use to interact with the kdb shell.

I've only tested kdb so far.
