Thanks for the prompt reply.
I am planning to release the GDB stub within the next month. However,
I would like to test it first with the "r" command fully working.
P.S. I've got a question regarding my another project - VirtualKD
(http://virtualkd.sysprogs.org). It's a VirtualBox/VMWare debug
transport for Windows kernel that transparently works with WinDbg
(although 40x faster than a COM port). I have recently switched the
VirtualBox plugin to the PDM-based model. However, it requires
manually invoking "vboxmanage setextradata" to enable the module.
Would it be possible to include the thin wrapper (see attachment) into
VirtualBox 4.2 so that it activates automatically if the user has
copied kdclient64.dll to VirtualBox directory? It's a simple virtual
device that listens to certain I/O ports and invokes handlers from
kdclient64.dll that actually implement the exchange.
I could also try to make a patch adding a checkbox to the UI to enable
VirtualKD if you could give me a hint where to look for it in the
