[vbox-dev] GDB stub for VirtualBox debugger

I have developed an open-source GDB stub to use with VirtualBox
debugger. It connects to the VirtualBox debugger over TCP and then
accepts incoming connections from GDB.
You can download it from here: http://sysprogs.com/VBoxGDB/
A step-by-step tutorial on debugging Linux kernel with it is here:
The stub currently uses a relatively dirty hack to be able to set the
target registers. In August I have submited a patch that adds the
missing implementation for register setting to VirtualBox. Is there
any chance that the patch can be included in one of the next release
candidates of VirtualBox 4.2.0 so that gdb debugging can work without
the dirty hack?
