Here you are: kern/101763

I didn't manage to do it.
It looks like kernel switches to remote gdb mode successfully but kgdb
fails to communicate.

This place in socreate() looks weird to me:
=========Beginning of the citation============== 
  so->so_count = 1;
  error = (*prp->pr_usrreqs->pru_attach)(so, proto, td);
  if (error) {
    return (error);
=========The end of the citation================ 
It will panic on error.
Wasn't the intent here to return the error code?

With best regards, Gleb Kozyrev.
