Does a Graphical Kernel Debugger exist for ppc?

Hi barry -
	When we do kernel debug here, we use either an Abatron BDI 2000 bdm debugger,
or build kgdb into the kernel itself.  Both soultions allow for an off-target
(host) gdb client connection, vi the gdb remote protocol via a network
connection or serial connection, respectively.  Since we can run gdb on the host
for these solutions, we have wrapped ddd around both with relatively good
hope that helps!
