You are correct. Only the kernel and drivers statically linked can be
easily debugged. It could be possible to debug modules but since the
addresses change every time you load them it would not be practical. You
would have to edit the symbol files (*.ab) each time.

For complete MMU handling the debugger would need to know where to find
the mapping tables and remap it's symbol info. None of our debuggers can
do that yet.
