I use  serial ports to debug zfs.ko between  two virtualboxs.  One is freebsd 8.3, one is freebsd 9.3.

At freebsd8.3 :
i type:
①karas# kldstat
Id Refs Address            Size     Name
 1    9 0xffffffff80100000 eae760   kernel
 3    1 0xffffffff81012000 17a988   zfs.ko
 4    1 0xffffffff8118d000 1fb4     opensolaris.ko
②karas# sysctl debug.kdb.enter=1
debug.kdb.enter: 0
At freebsd9.3:
I type:
①root at yangjie:/usr/kernel/kernel # kgdb -r /dev/cuau0 ./kernel
